Endive with Blue Cheese, Pears, & Walnuts

Endive with Blue Cheese, Pears, & Walnuts
Yields 24
Sweet pears and earthy walnuts are a natural match with creamy blue cheese. To make this quick and easy appetizer extra festive, seek out red endive for that pop of holiday color.
  1. 3 endives, preferably a mix of colors
  2. 2 ounces Litehouse Simply Artisan Center Cut Blue Cheese, crumbled (about 1/2 cup)
  3. 1 firm but ripe pear, diced
  4. 1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
  5. 2 teaspoons olive oil
  6. 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  7. For garnish: Honey and freshly ground black pepper
  1. ► Trim the root end off each endive. Remove any bruised or browned outer leaves and discard, then carefully remove whole clean leaves to get about 24 endive “cups.”
  2. ► Place the blue cheese, pear, and walnuts in a medium bowl. Lightly toss to combine. Drizzle in olive oil and lemon juice and toss gently to coat.
  3. ► Spoon blue cheese mixture into each endive boat and place on a serving platter. Drizzle with a bit of honey, garnish with freshly ground black pepper, and serve.
