Frisée Salad with Cherries & Blue Cheese Recipe

Makes: 6 servings

Serving Size: 1 1/3 cups

Active Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil plus 2 tablespoons, divided
  • 4 thin slices prosciutto
  • 2 cups sweet cherries, pitted and halved, divided
  • 2 tablespoons raspberry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped shallot
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 8 cups torn frisée or curly endive
  • 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese


  1. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add prosciutto and cook, turning once or twice, until crispy, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Break each slice into 3 “crisps.”
  2. Place the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, 1/2 cup cherries, vinegar, shallot, tarragon, sugar and salt in a blender; puree until smooth.
  3. Toss frisée (or endive) in a large bowl with the remaining cherries and the dressing. Divide the salad among 6 plates. Top each salad with a scant 1 tablespoon blue cheese and 2 prosciutto crisps.
