Witlof Salad w Lychees, Melon & Pumpkin Seed Dressing

Witlof Salad w Lychees, Melon & Pumpkin Seed Dressing
Belgian endive, chicory, witloof, witlof, they're all the same. I love its special slightly bitter flavour (more so at the base of the head), and how it therefore goes so well with sweeter ingredients like fruits, as well as nuts and seeds. Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc, and contain several different forms of vitamin E.
Cuisine: vegan

You need
  • 1 head of witlof
  • 5 lychees

  • 10 small melon balls (Honeydew melon)
  • 1 tbsp of finely chopped dill
for the dressing:
  • 1 tbsp of pumpkin butter (store bought or home made)
  • 1 tbsp of lychee syrup from canned lychees (if you use fresh lychees and therefore don't have syrup, you could replace it with a little bit of diluted apple cordial)
To do
  1. mix the ingredients for the dressing
  2. finely slice the witlof, scoop the melon balls (if you don't have a melon baller, just cut small cubes)
  3. mix witlof, melon balls and the dill, top with dressing, serve :-)
