Apple & Chicory Cheese Salad



  1. 1 Chicory
  2. 1 small Apple
  3. 10 grams Sliced almonds
  4. 1 Blue cheese or Camembert cheese, etc.
  5. 2 tbsp Raisins (optional)
  6. 1 1/2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
  7. 1 tbsp Apple vinegar (or white wine vinegar)
  8. 1 tsp Honey
  9. 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  10. 1/2 tsp Herb salt (or Krazy Salt)
  11. 1 tbsp Plain yogurt


  1. Roughly chop the chicory and soak in water to help it retain it's crunchy texture.
  2. Drain the water and pat dry.
  3. Cut the apple into thick matchstick sized pieces.
  4. Soak in salt water to prevent color change, then drain.
  5. Roast the almonds in the microwave for 40-60 seconds.
  6. (If you have the time, dry-roast in the frying pan.)
  7. If you are adding raisins, soak in warm water (and drain before use.)
  8. [Dressing] Add all of the ingredients except the yogurt into a bowl.
  9. Use a whisk to emulsify and combine well.
  10. Once everything has blended together, add the yogurt.
  11. If you have a small whisk (meant for sauces?
  12. ), you can make a small amount of emulsified dressing in a small bowl, so it's pretty convenient.
  13. Arrange the chicory, apples, and cheese on a dish.
  14. Top with the dressing and sprinkle with the almonds to finish.
  15. I garnished the dish with fresh dill, as seen in the photo.
  16. You probably can't really tell in the photo, but I added some green raisins.
  17. You can divide the salad into small dishes to serve at a party.
  18. This is an apple sold in England.
  19. 1 small apple is about 150 g.
