Pear and Feta Bites


3 medium heads endive

3/4 cup small-dice feta cheese

2 cups small-dice pear

1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon olive oil

3/4 teaspoon 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. Serves 8-12.
