Escarole - Find Fresh Farm Markets and Groceries in NJ

Escarole is a leafy green vegetable and member of the chicory family, along with frisée and endive. Escarole has broad, curly green leaves and a slightly bitter flavor. It can be eaten raw, grilled, sautéed, or cooked in dishes.

How to Select

Choose escarole that looks green and fresh. Stay away from damaged or browning leaves. Since a lot of dirt and sand can get trapped between its curly leaves, be sure to wash this endive thoroughly before you prepare it.

How to Store

Store unwashed with a dampened paper towel in a perforated plastic bag and refrigerate for up to 1 week.
