A slightly more unusual vegetable that you’ll only get a couple times this year. Escarole is a type of endive. It’s related to dandelion greens, and radicchio. It’s a mildy bitter green (that bitter is what alot of people are after). I didn’t used to like it, but now, especially in the summer, I find myself craving it. It’s a good source of Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a great source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Folate, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Iron, Potassium, Zinc, Copper and Manganese. Yum!
