Lettuce Free Salad: Endive Salad with Pickled Beans, Radishes & Eggs

Author Notes:

Growing up, lettuce was rarealy present in my meals. It amazes me how many Americans think of salads as a bowl of lettuce with a few slices of cucumber and some shredded carrots.

Forget that! This salad is bright in colors, textures and flavors and is great as a side dish or can be a full meal because of the hard boiled eggs. Go and make it soon and rethink your definition of a salad.
