Escarole

Escarole

Taste: Like its relative, Belgian endive, it's slightly bitter. Choose young, tender leaves for raw salads.

Smart Substitutions: Mesclun, mustard greens, arugula, or spinach.

Recipe Idea: Escarole is great raw in salads or cooked in Italian pastas and soups. Try sautéing with olive oil and garlic for an easy, healthy side. Or try this delicious soup, which is one of our top-rated recipes.
