Admittedly, this salad may be trying a little too hard (or perhaps I’ve been watching too much Top Chef). In any case, if you’re looking for a sophisticated, unique way to start off a dinner party, this is just the trick. The key to this dish is balance. Endive is naturally very bitter, but is offset by drizzling honey over the whole plate. The figs and pistachios add texture, and the fried prosciutto… well, who doesn’t love crispy pork?
