More about Chicory or Curly Endive:

Chicory, also called endive or curly endive, is a slightly bitter tasting salad green, which is excellent for giving a mixed green salad a variety of tastes.  Chicory is also more “crunchy” than leaf lettuce, so that combining them together gives the salad more “interest”.  When purchasing, select chicory that is firm and crispy and has dark green leaves (see photo).  See nutritional chart below.
