Sara over at the Saucy Dipper has come up with not one, not two, but THREE dip recipes perfect for pairing with the endive. The dip recipes come just in time for Saucy Dipper’s special event called Dipstock. Discover Endive is happy to participate in Dipstock, a festival of dips, as Sara likes to call it.
The first 20 Dipstock participants will receive a dip tray from Discover Endive and one lucky winner will receive a free shipment of endive. Anyone can participate. All you have to do is make a dip and share the recipe. Visit the Saucy Dipper to find out more about Dipstock and to get the recipes for a Light Ranch Dip, Spicy Pineapple Dip, and a Greek-Food Lovers Dip, all of which taste delicious when served with endive.

The holidays are filled with wonderful opportunities to share home cooked meals, entertain friends and neighbors, and celebrate all that is delicious during the season. Today, one of our OnDivas, Carolyn, from All Day I Dream About Food, shares a family recipe for homemade boursin. The recipe is her husband’s, and Carolyn promises it is “out of this world!” She puts a healthy dollop on raw endive leaves, and tops that with smoked salmon. Try Carolyn’s version, or use the delicious spread as a base and come up with your own mouth-watering combinations. Ideas include:

  • chopped walnuts
  • dried cranberries
  • thinly sliced cucumber
  • buttery croutons (for extra crunch!)
  • fresh herbs (basil, dill, Italian parsley)
  • smoked almonds
  • crumbled bacon
  • a drizzle of honey

Mix and match a few to see what you like best! And be sure to visit Carolyn’s blog for the full recipe and story behind this family favorite!

One Cup of Endive a Week Can Reduce the Risk of 

Ovarian Cancer by 75%

Endive - A Nutritional Powerhouse

During the premiere of the new Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. William Li, a noted cancer researcher, featured foods that can cut the risk of ovarian cancer.
Number one on the list was endive.
In a study of more than 62,000 women in the Netherlands, those who ate endive had a 75% reduction in the risk of ovarian cancer.
Experts believe that one-third of cancers can be prevented by eating the right foods. The good news is that you only have to consume one cup of raw endive a week to gain the anti-cancer benefit.
