  2. 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  3. 1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
  4. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  5. 2 cups packed flat-leaf parsley
  6. 1 cup packed small basil leaves
  7. 1 cup packed 1-inch chive pieces
  8. 1/2 cup small mint leaves
  9. 1/4 cup tarragon leaves
  10. 2 Belgian endives, separated into leaves or halved lengthwise and sliced crosswise 1/2 inch thick
  11. Chive or sage blossoms, for garnish (optional)
  1. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise with the lime juice and zest; season with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, mix the herbs with the endives. Add the dressing, toss and garnish with the chive blossoms; serve.
