Belgian Endive

//Belgian Endive

These tight, compact heads are packed with flavor and crunch. While a popular way to eat endive is slowly and carefully braised to caramelized brown perfection, endive adds a solid crunch to any salad, whether on their own as in this Endive Kumquat Salad, or mixed with other greens. They tend to have a bit of a bitter edge, so know your audience or use them sparingly with other salad greens.

Since most Belgian endive is now grown indoors (it used to be grown buried in sand to keep the leaves white), it’s a great option come dead of winter when you’re craving that satisfying fresh-leaf crunch.
