This is a lovely alternative to a traditional appetizer. It can be passed or served as a salad course. Makes an excellent starter for Thanksgiving or an elegant fall dinner party.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • ⅓ cup cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 1 head Belgian endive separated into leaves
  • 1 Bartlett pear, cored and diced
  • ¼ cup candied walnuts
  • ¼ cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 green onion, sliced
Directions
  1. 1. Combine the olive oil, vinegar, maple syrup, and mustard together in a blender; blend until smooth.
  2. 2. Arrange the endive on a serving platter with the rounded side down so that the leaves act as little bowls. Fill the endive with the diced pear, walnuts, and Gorgonzola cheese. Be careful to not overfill if you want to pass these. Carefully drizzle the dressing over the filling. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with green onion to serve.
