Ensalada de Endivias, Langostinos y Frutas

My Mr’s mother has spent a couple of weeks with us at the end of last year and she has prepared some meals that I’m happy we didn’t miss to photograph. This salad, typically consumed at New Year’s Eve in my boyfriend’s family, is a perfect example. A fresh salad, complete with crunchy endive, shrimps, eggs and lots of fruit, accompanied by a tangy ‘salsa rosa’ is a perfect festive dish that is great for any occasion really. I would suggest you use endive and not a different veggie because that’s the key ingredient in this salad 🙂 The bitterness of this veggie is nicely toned down by the dressing.

2 pieces of endive
100 g crabsticks, cubed or shredded
250g shrimps, peeled and cooked
2 boiled eggs
1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
1 tomato, cut into pieces
handful of grapes, halved (peeled and seeds removed if you have the patience)
3/4 cup pineapple, cut into pieces (according to my Mr’s mother for this salad the canned version is better than the fresh one)

Layer all the ingredients in a big bowl and decorate with the prettiest endive leaves. Refrigerate until ready to consume.

For the salsa rosa:

200g mayonnaise
3 tbsp ketchup
3 tbsp whisky
juice of half orange
1 tbsp mustard

Mix all the ingredients until smooth. Serve with the salad 🙂

You can consume this salad as an appetizer or as a main dish as we did, it was completely satisfying! Enjoy 😉

  1. Looks Yummy! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. Beautiful dish. I don’t think I’ve ever tried endive before & I’ll have to look up what it looks like before it gets cut up. Nicely done with that whiskey in the dressing. The dressing sounds like it could go well with so many other salads too.
