Endive is considered ‘in season’ between mid fall and early spring, making this vegetable the perfect solution for a mix and mingle environment. The shape of endive creates a ‘boat’ that may be filled to the brim with morsels that suit your dinning preferences. The possibilities are endless!  The flavor of endive can be slightly bitter, making it the perfect pairing for sweetness. In this recipe I chose a local honey and creamy blue cheese to compliment the tartness of the endive.
