Escarole is a broad-leaf endive that makes a nice addition to a mixed green salad.  In contrast to the leaf lettuces, escarole has a firm chewy texture and a slightly bitter taste.  Combined with milder-tasting lettuce, escarole adds “interest” to a salad.  Select heads that are crisp and bright green.  We could not find the nutritional chart information specifically for escarole, but the nutritional chart below for endive (general category) appears to be fairly accurate for escarole, too.
