    Endive Boats with Grapefruit and Walnuts

    This elegant appetizer is a cinch to prepare and showcases spring’s bitter, punchy flavour profile. Pungent endive, puckery grapefruit, and earthy walnuts create a unique and sophisticated snack experience. This comes together quickly and is best made right before serving.
