My easy to follow picture tutorial below will walk you through the process of how to shred.

Step 3

  2. Swish them around to be sure they are clean before beginning to shred

  1. Stack a few layers of the endive leaves (about 4 - 5), one on top of the other.

Step 6

  1. Flip your little stack of endive over and begin to slice a very thin shred

Step 7

  1. Continue to shred all way along the stack

Step 8
