This blue cheese, walnut and date syrup boats is such a must-try recipe, a perfect combination and marriage of ingredients.
I have made this over the Christmas period and my mum tried it too. She was very intrigued by the combo and she noted down the recipe, saying she'll prepare the 'boats' again, for my dad as well pretty soon when she reaches home. This must be good then.
Truthfully, you eat those and your whole mouth will be so overwhelmed with joy. It's all very tasty and equally healthy.
This can be a beautiful appetizer, snack or a nice, fine start to any meal.
It is impressive, it's all I could say for both eyes and taste buds.
The beauty of this is that it's ready in a flash and all you will need is 4 ingredients.
Yes, only four! Or...5 ?
Blue cheese, walnut and date syrup little boats
- 2 endives (chicory)
- 100 g walnuts
- 100 g blue cheese (soft)
- 3-4 tbsp date syrup
- 2 tbsp sunflower seeds (optional, toasted)
- Wash the endives and shake off the water.
- Remove each leaf and place on a serving plate.
- On each leaf place two pieces of walnut and two crumbs of cheese.
- When finished all to arrange, drizzle carefully the dates syrup making sure each leaf gets a fair share.
- Optionally finish off with a sprinkle of toasted sunflower seeds.
- It's as simple as this. No fuss. ??
What a wonderful idea this recipe is. I have made it for work yesterday and shared with some of my colleagues, they absolutely loved it and asked for the details so I have recommended your site for some really wonderful recipes. I have made quite a few of your recipes and they were all delicious. I always come back to see what is new 😉
Thank you so much dear Lavada, you are most kind and I love to hear you e are a true fan of Ramona's cuisine 😉 Thanks again!
Really delicious combination, I have used maple syrup and it was really really good, I am sure honey is as good if not better. I will definitely make this again.
I am so glad you loved it Mauria, we love this too 😉

Brian Jones says
Such a great flavour combination, I use blue cheese and walnuts in a few recipes but the addition of the date syrup was fantastic.
Thank you Brian ?
Thank you so much dear Brian. I’m so happy you liked the recipe. It’s such a regular over here ...?
You had me at blue cheese! And the date syrup sounds amazing!
Thank you dear Susan, it’s so nice, right? A must have indeed ?
Love these for a beautiful appetizer! Simply delicious! Such a great idea.
Ah, this is a wonderful way to entrtain a goup of friends. I am sure it is not often that one gets to taste something as nice-looking as this. Perfect appetizer for the weekend!
Thank you so much dear Danielle, I am so happy you like the recipe.
Perfectly combined ingredients, great on an endive leaves. They are an excellent base for other dishes too, a very successful idea. I did not find the date syrup, but I used the maple syrup as you suggested, it was super.
Thank you for sharing!
Thank you so much dear Fiorenza. Maple syrup is as good and delivers very well the necessary sweetness this appetiser needs to be just perfect.
Thank you again and I’m so happy you liked the recipe ??
Byron Thomas says
I love this! Such a wonderful and easy to prepare little appetizer. We loved the creaminess of the blue cheese coupled with the crunch of the endive and the walnuts. I did toast the walnuts. I think it made a huge difference.
Thank you so much Byron, toasted walnuts add so much flavour and texture to the recipe indeed. I’m so happy you liked the recipe ?

Sandhya Ramakrishnan says
How adorable these little boats look and this will be such a lovely finger food for parties. The ingredients you have used are so exquisite and I am tempted to try them to see how they taste together.
Thank you Sandhya, I’m sure you’ll like the combo. Let me know if you try and how you liked it. Thank you again.
These little boats sound so delicious. I think I might want my walnuts toasted, but if they're good ones, untoasted would be good too.
Thank you Choclette, toasting the nuts makes such a difference. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this ?
