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