Bleu Cheese and Cherry Stuffed Endive – Skyterra Recipe

Bleu Cheese and Cherry Stuffed Endive is a delicious seasonal finger food which makes a bright and lovely appetizer for any lunch or dinner. Skip ordinary cheese and crackers and use crisp, leafy endives for a plant-based pre-meal platter instead.  Smoked bleu cheese adds gentle complexity to the natural sweetness of dried cherries, but plain high-quality bleu cheese works well too.
