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!

I really enjoyed this recipe. I made this for an appetizer for my family dinner. Everyone enjoyed the flavor of the stuffing. I used celery instead of Endive only to save money. But the celery worked VERY well with the stuffing.

Left out the olives due to personal preference. Added a little more sun-dried tomatoes. Took to a superbowl party and was asked by several people for the recipe. Will make it again.

I made this for Mother's Day. The men in our family do not like goat's cheese as a rule and I figured it would be for just us moms. Everyone, all husbands included, ate it up. My husband and my father loved it and I thought that they would never touch it. It was wonderful. I used Greek black olives, sun dried tomatoes that were not packed in oil, and maye a pinch more of red pepper flakes. I arranged it in a flower design (used extra olives, tomatoes, and basil leaves for center design) and stuck it all down with a little more cheese smeared on the plate. The colors in the filling are not only delicious, but much prettier when put together than I expected. A+ for ease, taste, & presentation!

The dip is outstanding! I also added finely diced red onion. The guests that didn't like the endive just used them as a holder and scooped out the dip with crackers or celery sticks. Excellent with goat cheese and the red pepper flakes added the perfect spice.

Fantastic! Made these little beauties for an appetiser holiday party last week and they were a hit. Used the goat cheese. I prepared the components several hours earlier, then assembled on site. I plated them on a large platter around a marinated olive bowl. There were no leftovers and got rave reviews. Thanks for this easy yet elegant recipe! Would make again for sure.
