SPICY Remoulade Sauce: Combine all ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to use.

SHERRY Dijon Vinaigrette: Whisk all ingredients until well blended. Refrigerate until ready to use.

RED Bean and Rice Cakes: Cook red beans and rice in separate pans as directed on packages; cool completely. Set aside.

MEANWHILE, heat oil in saute pan. Cook sausage until lightly browned. Add onions, peppers and garlic; cook 3 to 4 min. or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in pimientos and seasonings. Cool completely.

PULSE 3 cups of the cooked beans (or 1-1/2 cups of the cooked beans for trial recipe) in food processor until coarsely chopped. Transfer to large bowl. Add rice, remaining whole beans, sausage mixture and mayonnaise; stir until blended.

SHAPE into 32 cakes (or into 16 cakes for trial recipe) using #24 scoop to portion out each cake. Dip cakes in egg whites then in bread crumbs, turning to evenly coat both sides of each. Place in full-sheet pans. Refrigerate 1 hour.

FRY in deep-fat fryer at 350ºF for 3 to 4 min. or until golden brown.

FOR each serving: Place 2 endive leaves, at an angle to each other, on one side of serving plate. Top with 1 cup greens tossed with 1-1/2 tsp. of the Sherry Dijon Vinaigrette. Arrange 4 tomato halves around salad. Spoon 2 Tbsp. of the Spicy Remoulade Sauce onto plate; top with 1 Red Bean and Rice Cake. Sprinkle cake with 1/4 tsp. chives.
