1 Belgian endive, cut crosswise into thin slices
1 small fennel bulb, trimmed and cut into 2-inch slivers

2. To prepare salad: Toast walnuts in a small dry skillet over low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. (Alternatively, toast in a toaster oven at 350ºF for about 6 minutes.) Transfer to a plate to cool.
