Robbie’s Produce Tips: Escarole

Escarole is a type of endive with a milder flavor than the Belgian variety. Here are some tips for selecting:

  • Choose escarole that looks green and fresh
  • Avoid browning leaves
  • Be sure to wash the bunch before using it as dirt may be trapped between its curly leaves
