"This is a good appetizer but needs more seasoning. I had to cut some of the endive leaves in 2 because they were too long and would have been awkward as finger food."

"Really good appie on 1/4" slices of cucumber instead of endive. I changed a few ingredients to - 1 tsp dill, 3 tbsp each minced celery, pimientos & added 3 tbsp minced carrot along w/ the rest. Pat shrimp dry before chopping. Do not make too far in advance or mixture becomes watery. Great appetizer and easy!
