Weekend Recipe - Garlicky Escarole

Esarole is a great summer green.  You can use it as a substitute for bibb letuce and red lettuce.  I like it because it makes a wilted green dish like lettuce never can.

Try this so you see what I mean:

Garlicky Escarole

2 heads escarole, chopped
1 Tbls. Olive oil
2 cloves fresh garlic, finely chopped
¼ tsp. crushed red pepper
Salt & pepper
1 8 to 10 ounce can cannellini beans
1 Tbls. capers


Heat extra virgin olive oil in 12-in. skillet on medium. Add garlic, finely chopped, and 14 tsp. crushed red pepper; cook 1 minute, stirring. Add escarole, and 1/8 tsp. each salt and pepper; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until wilted, stirring and tossing.

Stir in cannellini beans rinsed and drained, and capers, drained and chopped. Cook 2 minutes.

Serve as a side or on baguette slices as an appetizer.
