This is my kind of Super ball food! If you don't like endive spread it in crackers or use as a dip for vegies. Use as a condiment for a sandwich or serve with grilled chicken.I`ve also added 1/4 cup diced red onions to the mixture.

Very nice appetizer! I had to use kalamata olives (as I was out of just regular black olives) and while this was very tasty, it overpowered the dip so I would definitely use black olives next time (or maybe half black and half kalamata). Used a little thyme in place of the basil (as hubby is not a fan) and this worked great. Used half goat cheese and half cream cheese since that's what I found in the fridge. This was a fun alternative to a salad this evening and a great way to use up some of the Endive from my coop box this week. Thanks!
