Lobster Boats


Perfectly dressed lobster salad spooned into tender endive leaves makes a wonderfully elegant and celebratory appetizer. It is so light and refreshing a great complement to the rest of any meal. The best part is that this appetizer can be made-ahead. Well, actually the lobster is the best part but the make ahead is a close second.
