Learn how to easily cut endive and prepare a delicious apple endive appetizer that healthy and refreshing. I love this recipe as a quick snack since it’s low calorie and low carb but still flavorful and satisfying. It has a crunchiness from the apples, walnuts and endive. The flavors are so clean and fresh that it leaves you with the feeling that you’ve made the right snack decision. Not to mention it’s eye appealing for a party appetizer and looks high effort but doesn’t take that long to make!
