Endive-and-Apricot Tartines

  • FAST

Tartines are open-face sandwiches that can be piled with any number of ingredients. Here, sweet apricots, crisp endive, toasted pecans and sharp Manchego cheese are an elegant and delicious combination.

  1. Four 3/4-inch slices of a rustic or sourdough boule
  2. 1/4 cup pecans
  3. Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing and drizzling
  4. 2 endives—halved lengthwise, cored and thinly sliced
  5. 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  6. Salt
  7. 2 fresh apricots—halved, pitted and thinly sliced
  8. Shaved sheep-milk cheese, such as Manchego, and chopped marjoram, for garnish
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°. Arrange the bread and pecans on a baking sheet. Brush the bread with some olive oil. Toast until the bread and pecans are golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Chop the pecans.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss the endives with the lemon juice and season with salt. Let stand until slightly wilted, about 3 minutes. Add the apricots and pecans and toss. Top the bread slices with the endive salad and garnish with cheese and marjoram. Drizzle with olive oil and serve.

Suggested Pairing
