The Best Vegetarian Appetizer-OneThat Leaves a Lasting Impression

Belgium Endive Vegetarian Appetizer

I first enjoyed this very impressive, yet simple-to-make appetizer years ago at a party I hosted in my home.  We are talking at least 10 years ago!  I wanted to serve my friends an appetizer that was really memorable (in a good way!).  This is the one!

My friend, Melinda, brought it.  We met 16 years ago at Jury Duty!  A group of 5 of us have kept in touch over the years.  She was gracious enough to share it with me and was delighted that I remembered it after all these years.  That's the kind of impression this appetizer will make!  For your dining pleasure, here is this wonderful recipe.

  1. Hi Debbie,

    Your recipe looks both yummy and healthy...I will have to give it a try. How neat that you met one of your friends through jury duty and have kept in touch.

    By the way, I'm passing the baton on to you for the Liebster Award:

  2. Hi Susan! I hope I haven't waited to long. I just saw this. I will answer the questions and do what ever I am supposed to do. I hope you win as you are the most amazing, spiritual woman. Big hugs, Debbie
