These Endive Beet Bits are not only pretty, they taste ah-mazing too! Now, I’ve been told that endive is a bit of mystery to some, but it is a really great leafy vegetable that is incredibly light and flavourful. It’s refreshing to have in a salad, or perhaps an appetizer (see what I did there?), and goes really well with beets and walnuts. Topped with Litehouse Organic Caesar Dressing, this appetizer comes together so quickly once the beets are cooked. Not into endive at all? Butter or Ice Berg Lettuce will do the trick here as well.
Got a bridal or baby shower coming up (tis’ the season!)? These Endive Beets would be dreamy to serve with bubbles. In my case, I thoroughly enjoyed them with a cold glass of wine on the patio watching the kids run through the sprinkler. Momma needs some play time too. You might remember these appetizers that are party ready too: Burrata Tarts and Cheese, Ham, and Olive Bites.
I still can’t get over how pretty these are! Did you see my teaser photo on IG? I’ve been trying to branch out with more veggies with my kids and so far using their favourite colours (aka purple) works really well. We’ve been on a purple food spree lately which is adventurous and fun all at once. Do they love endive or beets? No, but the Litehouse Dressings and Dip (hello Dilly of a Dip!) are so scrumptious, I’m pretty sure we’d eat anything with them.
I hope you get the chance to enjoy these Endive Beet Bites with Caesar Dressing and all the Litehouse organic dressings now available at your local grocery store.
- 2 medium beets tops trimmed
- 1 bay leaf dried or fresh
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 heads of endive purple or green, OR Butter or IceBerg Lettuce, ends trimmed and separated into individual leaves
- 1/4 cup crumbled walnuts roughly smash in a bag with a pan
- 1/2 cup Litehouse Organic Caesar Dressing
- Fresh herbs to garnish chives or dill, about 1 tbsp chopped
Place beets in a medium saucepan with bay leaf and salt. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook at a strong simmer for 15-20 minutes or until beets are tender when poked with a fork. Remove from heat and drain. Once cooled enough to handle, remove skin by rubbing with paper towel or by using a vegetable peeler. Slice beets into thin wedges.
Top each endive leaf with 2 slice of beets, walnut crumble, Caesar dressing, and fresh herbs.
