EXPRESS DETOX SALAD (by Maman)

Detox salad

On lazy days, after a long day on one of her construction sites, Maman throws together express salads from what she finds in the fridge and the pantry. This one is made with endives, zucchinis, cherry tomatoes, walnuts, cranberries, pistachios and apples served with walnut oil dressing. It's delicious. Bon appetit!
