1. Cook the bacon on high heat in a pan until the strips are very crispy. Transfer the cooked bacon to a clean, flat surface to let them cool. Then, chop the bacon into small bits.
2. Prepare the salad boats by removing the endive leaves from their base. Rinse and pat dry the leaves if necessary. Arrange the endive leaves on a plate or flat surface, as these will serve as the “boats”.
3. Fill each endive leaf with arugula, chopped walnuts, grated carrot, chopped feta, and the bacon bits. Sprinkle the pepper over everything. Just before serving, evenly drizzle the olive oil and balsamic across the salad boats. Enjoy cold.
