Here’s a great recipe update from Anne of Teach. Eat. Love. that replaces celery with California endive in the classic “ants on a log” snack. The traditional filling of raisins and peanut butter also gets a sophisticated upgrade, as dried cranberries, apples and blue cheese take a starring turn. Try this with a nice glass of white wine for an elegant appetizer.
