Pear and Feta Bites
In this refreshing and unexpected cocktail-party appetizer, elegantly concave leaves of Belgian endive become easy-to-pick-up vessels for a delicious mixture of diced feta and pear, seasoned with lemon juice, olive oil, and salt and pepper. It’s easy, healthy, and sets your guests up for the meal (or more substantial appetizers) to come.
number of servings
- 3 head medium endive
- 3⁄4 cup small-dice feta cheese
- 2 cup small-dice pear
- 11⁄2 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tbl olive oil
- 3⁄4 tsp ground coriander
- freshly ground black pepper
Trim the ends off the heads of endive and remove the leaves (you will need 30 to 40 leaves); set aside.
Gently toss the feta, pear, lemon juice, olive oil, and coriander in a medium bowl until evenly coated. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat well.
Place 1 tablespoon of the cheese-pear mixture in each endive leaf and serve immediately.
