  • Makes 12 boats

This eye-catching appetizer is a great canapé to serve at your next dinner party. The crunchy endive boats cradle a delectable filling of fresh fruit and tomatoes for a sweet and savory combo that will leave everyone wanting more. Fresh tarragon is sprinkled over the top for a tasty herbal garnish. When you’re shopping for this recipe, look for plump heads of Belgian endive: The leaves will be broader and less likely to roll over once filled.

Endive Boats with Summer Fruit on a light blue platter


  • 2 heads Belgian endive
  • 3 ripe peaches, pitted and finely chopped
  • 1 large tomato, finely chopped
  • ½ cup fresh blueberries, chopped if large
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup or date syrup


  1. Separate the endive leaves and place 12 of the nicest, largest leaves on a clean surface.
  2. In a bowl mix together the remaining ingredients, reserving some of the tarragon for garnish. Spoon fruit mixture into endive leaves. Arrange filled leaves on a platter. Garnish with reserved tarragon.
