Arugula, Endive, Radicchio & Walnut Salad!

by Nicole on November 1, 2011

Hi! I’m a little late for posting today because my morning started off differently. I went to the gym at 6 am, when usually I’m sleeping. I normally post first thing in the morning and then workout mid-morning or afternoon but today I got up and at ‘em! I’m in phase 3 of Jamie Eason’s trainer. It’s NO JOKE. She had me doing 30 second sprints for 30 minutes and then a LONG weights session this morning. Nuts!

I have a slew of cookbooks in my office. Some of which get opened more than others. I go to different ones for different reasons. For good Italian dinner inspiration I usually go right to Giada. Dinner recipe inspiration are between Everyday Food, Rachael Ray, Everyday Vegan and Eat Clean Diet. Those are my go-tos. (Is that too many to be “go-to?)

My mom and stepdad on the other hand are HUGE Lidia Bastianich fans. She just came out with a new cookbook, Lidia’s Italy in America.  She basically traveled the country and highlights different cities and recipes with their Americanized Italian recipes. My mom and stepdad went to a book signing in Huntington last week and got a picture with her. They said she was super nice and down to earth. My mom bought me her cookbook that’s signed by her! :)

When you crack open this cookbook you can’t help but drool. I don’t know if it’s because I’m Italian that I feel warm and fuzzy inside when I look through each recipe, but either way, it’s amazing. My mom made this salad 2x and I’ve made it once already…which means I’ve eaten it 3 times in the week we’ve had the cookbook. I can’t wait to try more of her recipes!

This isn’t the exact recipe from the book. I had to change it based on what I had on hand. Either way it’s amazing and the toasted walnuts with grated cheese are what makes this salad so spectacular.

Something to read: Check out my November Newsletter. It’s National Diabetes Month and there are steps you can take to be proactive against the disease!  I also give some info  about my 30 day cleanse that will be starting after Thanksgiving!

Have a great day!

I think that is a good amount of “go-to” cookbooks! I have WAY too many and need to start using them more!
