Endive and Snap Pea Salad with Parmesan Dressing


  • 3 cups (10 ounces) sugar snap peas, stemmed, stringed
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt plus more
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan, divided
  • 2 tablespoons Champagne vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper plus more for seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 red Belgian endive or small Treviso radicchio spears
  • 8 yellow Belgian endive spears
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced chives
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chervil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped tarragon

Recipe Preparation

  • Blanch peas in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until bright green and crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Drain peas; transfer to a bowl of ice water to cool. Drain; thinly slice on a sharp diagonal.

  • Purée 1/4 cup Parmesan, vinegar, lime juice, Dijon mustard, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a blender until smooth. With machine running, gradually add both oils and blend until emulsified and well incorporated.

  • Place 1 red endive spear and 1 yellow spear on each plate. Fill leaves with some of the snap peas. Top with 2 more endive spears (arrange perpendicularly to the bottom leaves) and fill with remaining snap peas. Drizzle some of dressing over. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan and herbs over, then drizzle with more dressing. Season with pepper.
