Escarole (scarola) is a bitter green belonging to the chicory family. As a salad green, it is often passed over in favor of the less interesting and less nutritious iceberg lettuce. There is one thing I have learned about leafy greens, the darker the color, the better it is for you True, escarole needs care and attention to the dirt lurking in its leaves, but several soakings in cold water does the trick. Crunchy escarole leaves are perfect for this salad with a tangy mustard vinaigrette.
