3 cups curly endive, torn into bite-size pieces 120 g
3 tbsp olive oil 45 mL
2 slices bread, whole wheat, cut into small cubes 70 g
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 tbsp wine vinegar 8 mL
1 tsp Dijon mustard 5 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
paper towels


  1. Tear the lettuce leaves into bite-size pieces and put them in a salad bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat half of the oil in a pan over medium heat. Cut the bread slices into small cubes and add them to the pan. Fry the cubes, with frequent turning, until browned, about 7 min. Remove the bread cubes with a slotted spoon or tongs and drain them on paper towels.
  3. Add the remaining oil to the pan over low heat. Finely chop the garlic and add it to the pan. Cook 1 min with stirring, then pour in the vinegar and mustard. Warm through and season to taste. Pour the dressing over the salad, then add the croutons. Serve.
