Endive, Grapefruit and Blue Cheese Salad

Right now I’m in Mexico, visiting my mom. Yesterday she had my grandma over to have lunch with her and all our siblings, and she made a salad we all love: Endive, Grapefruit and Blue Cheese salad with chopped walnuts and raspberry vinaigrette.

I had totally forgotten about this salad, and I do love it very much. So I asked her for the recipe and her approval to share it here. It does look as delicious as it tastes. And this will mark my first vegetarian recipe in this blog. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family does!
