Endive Salad with Bacon, Gorgonzola, and Avocado

Simple and satisfying for a quick mid-week dinner. Enjoy!


  • 5 slices (about 5 oz.) thick-cut bacon
  • 4 large heads Belgian endive, trimmed and coarsely chopped
  • 2 ripe avocados, chopped
  • 1/2 cup gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallot
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil


  1. In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, cook bacon, turning once, until crisp and brown, about 6 minutes total. Remove bacon from pan and drain on paper towels, then crumble into small pieces.
  2. In a medium serving bowl, combine bacon, endive, avocado, and gorgonzola. Set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together shallot and vinegar. Gradually drizzle in olive oil, whisking, until dressing is emulsified. Pour vinaigrette over salad and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
