    Next, slice the white endive and transfer to a plate. Then peel off individual leaves from the red endive and use to garnish the dish, like flower petals.

    Last, drizzle the Roquefort cheese dressing over the salad and sprinkle the walnuts on top. Serve as an accompaniment to any main dish or place in a large bowl for family-style serving. This salad makes a sabrosa addition to any meal and goes well with ham or baked turkey.
