Ingredients

4 large heads of white endive
4 tablespoons olive oil
1⁄2 lb (230g) cooked beet
1 orange
3 tablespoons good-quality mayonnaise
2 teaspoons wholegrain mustard

 

Directions

  1. Preheat the grill. Rinse and dry the endive, then trim the heads and remove any damaged outer leaves. Cut the heads of endive in half, lengthwise.
  2. Put the halves on the grill rack, cut sides down, brush with some of the olive oil and grill for 5 minutes, about 4in. (10cm) away from the heat. Turn them over, brush with the remaining olive oil and grill for 3 minutes more until the edges begin to char.
  3. Meanwhile, slice the beet into thin discs and set them aside.
  4. To make the orange and mustard dressing, squeeze 1 tablespoon of juice from the orange and stir it into the mayonnaise, then stir in the wholegrain mustard.
  5. Remove the endive from the grill. Arrange it, cut sides up, around a serving dish, like the spokes of a wheel. Spoon the orange and mustard dressing on top and lay the sliced beet in between.
