Pear and Feta Bites


Christine Gallary,

This recipe was demonstrated at our Market to Table program on December 5, 2009.

Familiar flavors team up in an unexpected way that’s a great option for any cocktail party.

Makes 8 to 12 servings as an hors d’oeuvre


3 medium heads endive
¾ cup diced feta
2 cups diced pears
1½ teaspoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
¾ teaspoon ground coriander
Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Trim the ends off of the endive, remove the leaves and set aside (you will need 30 to 40 leaves).

  2. Gently toss the feta, pear, lemon juice, olive oil, and coriander in a medium bowl until evenly coated. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and toss to coat well.
  3. Place a tablespoon of the cheese-pear mixture in each endive leaf and serve immediately.
