This is such a colorful appetizer. In reality, it's a deconstructed version of a very popular spinach salad, usually served with fruit, dried cranberries and a vinaigrette.

Creamy blue cheese, dried cranberries and toasted walnuts top endive, or apple slices.

Easy and delicious!

    Thanks Kathy! I've started Happy Hour Fridays on my blog. I decided I needed a break on Fridays, so coming up with appetizers is a ton of fun!
