Top each one with a sliver of red mixed pickle.

That's all there is to it. Keep refrigerated if you'll be serving them later.
Remarks
Of course, if you don't have red endives, which have a short season, the green variety will work just as well.

Similarly, you can also change the filling and use mackerel rillettes, salmon rillettes or Oriane's tuna rillettes .
Keeping
A few hours in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
