Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, drain and cover the eggs with ice-cold water; let stand until cold. Peel and finely chop.

  • Whisk mayonnaise, horseradish, lemon juice and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in the chopped eggs, celery, shallot and dill.

  • Place endive on a serving platter. Fill each leaf with about 1 tablespoon of the egg salad. Garnish with caviar, pepper and more dill, if desired. Serve immediately.


To make ahead: Refrigerate egg salad (Steps 1-2) for up to 1 day.

Tip: If you want to make sure you're picking caviar that's from a sustainable source, go with farmed sturgeon caviar. Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch rates it a "Best Choice." Skip ones from the Caspian or Black Seas--the U.S. has banned imports from there.
