Chicken Salad in Endive Boats
Endive is also labelled Belgian endive by some grocers. The smaller leaves on the inside are best for this recipe. Be sure to fill leaves just before serving, as they will brown.
1 cup (250 mL) cooked chicken breast, chopped in small cubes
1/2 cup (125 mL) green seedless grapes, quartered
1/4 cup (60 mL) sliced almonds
1/4 cup (60 mL) red onion, finely diced
1 Tbsp (15 mL) 1% plain yogurt
1 Tbsp (15 mL) dill, finely chopped
8 endive leaves, washed and dried
In a medium bowl, fold together diced chicken breast, grapes, sliced almond, red onion, yogurt and dill. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon equal amounts of chicken mixture into each of eight endive leaves. If you like, garnish each with a sprig of dill.
