For your next cocktail party, serve this tasty appetizer with two others: Baby Lamb Chops with Artichoke and Tarragon Dip and Ham and Cheese Mini Frittatas.


  • 6 ounces lump white crab meat, broken into small pieces with your fingertips
  • 1/4 red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 orange, zested
  • 3 radishes, grated
  • 3 tablespoons celery greens, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 24 endive leaves
  • Chopped parsley or chives, for garnish


Put the crab in a medium bowl. Add the bell pepper, shallot, orange zest, grated radish, celery greens, salt and pepper.

Combine the mayonnaise and heavy cream in a small bowl. Add the dressing to the crab and mix well. Using a rounded spoonful, mound the crab salad onto the root end of each endive leaf and fill the leaves half their length. Arrange stuffed endive leaves on a platter and garnish with chopped parsley or chives.
