When buying endive, look for firm, fat, crisp heads (usually about 6 inches long) with tight, unblemished white leaves ending in yellow tips. Green tips indicate that the endive is not fresh. The cut end should look fresh, with no browning.

Wine Pairing

This pairs well with crisp, medium-bodied white wines like the Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc, Napa County/Sonoma County from our Wine Club.


Prepare the crab salad
In a bowl, stir together the fennel, crabmeat, shallot, the 1 Tbs. chives, the parsley, mayonnaise, crème fraîche, lemon juice, the 1/4 tsp. salt and the 1/4 tsp. white pepper. Taste and adjust the seasonings with salt and white pepper.

Assemble the salad
Trim the root ends from the endive heads and separate into spears. Arrange 24 of the largest spears on a platter. Spoon a generous amount of crab salad onto the wide end of each spear, garnish with chives and serve immediately. Makes 24 pieces.
