Winter brings with it what, here at Fresh Harvest, we might argue is the best salad season. We are blessed with fresh greens, arugula and unique varieties of chicories from our local farms. To make the most of one of our favorite chicories, sugarloaf endive, here is a spin on the classic wedge salad.

This salad can stand on it’s own, or act as a great accompaniment to your main meal. Either way, this Endive Wedge Salad is sure to please your steakhouse fans and farmer’s market fiends. Plus, there’s something extra satisfying about cutting into a salad wedge.

Don’t have sugarloaf endive on hand? Substitute another type of endive, radicchio, or iceberg lettuce. Check out Fresh Harvest’s Greens Page for what’s available next week!
