  • 8 medium Endives
  • ½ Apple finely diced
  • ½ Pear finely diced
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • ¼ cup Pecans finely chopped
  • 1 ounce Blue Cheese

Blue Cheese Dressing

  • 1/2 cup Sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1-2 tablespoon Milk
  • 1 clove Garlic finely minced
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 ounces Blue cheese crumbled
  • 1/4 teaspoon Black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt or to taste



  • Trim the tough end off of the endive and then cut it into quarters lengthwise and arrange on your serving platter.
  • In a small bowl toss the lemon juice and diced apples and pear together. This will keep the fruit from turning brown.
