Kidney Kindness Salad

Serves 2

2 medium heads yellow endive

1 medium apple, sliced this

½ cup walnuts, chopped

½ cup watercress leaves

¼ cup blue cheese

Dressing

1 tablespoon nonfat cottage cheese

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

3 teaspoons walnut oil

1 medium clove garlic, crushed

Salt and pepper to taste

Carefully remove all the leaves of the endive without breaking them. Wash and dry endive, apple, and watercress.  Arrange endive leaves at the bottom of each individual plate in a circle, apple slices in the middle, and watercress over endive. Sprinkle walnuts and blue cheese on top.

Place dressing ingredients in a blender and puree. Pour over salad, and serve.

Watercress and endive are powerful cleansers of the intestinal and circulatory systems. They also improve kidney function.
