Wilted Curly Endive Recipe

Publisher Photo
This warm salad is a deliciously different way to serve lettuce. Unlike other wilted versions, this one is not sweet. Vinegar and bacon give it old-fashioned savory goodness.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 12, 2013

I made this for a german potluck and added a bit more vinegar and used kale instead of endive. It was gone in minutes!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 21, 2012

THe flavor on this was quite good, but the quanities were questionable. The greens just seemed to disappear! How much is a "bunch" of endive? It would be better if the quantity of endive was given in oz. or lbs.
