Endive Boats

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Have fun, be creative!

1-2 heads of large Belgium endive
1 lemon
1 -2 mandarin oranges, or other oranges as available
pimiento stuffed olives
1-2 hard cooked eggs
1/2 cup cooked baby shrimp, if desired
2-3 sprigs fresh parsley, snipped
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1-2 tablespoons lemon juice, or vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sugar or honey
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
sprinkles of semi-coarse coral or black sea salt, etc.

Wash endive well, pulling leaves off. Dry. Arrange boat shaped larger leaves on plates or a large platter. Sprinkle with some freshly squeezed lemon juice. In a bowl, combine orange segments, olives, diced hard cooked eggs, shrimp and snipped parsley. Toss gently. In a measuring cup, whisk the oil, juice or vinegar, honey, and pepper. Add to the salad mix and then gently spoon the filling into the endive boats. Sprinkle with sea salt. These can be served immediately, or chilled up to 3-4 hours and then served.
