Directions

In a bowl stir together creme fraiche, zests, juices, tarragon, and salt and pepper, to taste. Chill sauce, covered, 1 hour to blend flavors.

Cut 3 inches of cucumber crosswise into very thin slices and reserve. Reserve 8 endive leaves for garnish and cut remaining cucumber and endive into 2-inch long matchsticks.

Just before serving, coarsely chop lobster and in another bowl stir together with 3/4 cup sauce. Stir matchstick vegetables into remaining sauce.
