|Caviar-Stuffed Endive |
1/2 Cup cottage cheese
2 Tbsp. salmon caviar
3 Tbsp. finely snipped fresh chives or minced scallions
3 Belgian endives, separated into 24 leaves
1/3 Cup assorted julienned vegetables (bell pepper, carrot, scallion)
In a mini-food processor or hand-held blender, puree the cottage cheese until smooth and creamy. Stir in 2 tablespoons of chives.
