Chicories

Endive: Maraichere Tres Fine

Also known as frisee, the triple cut leaves add loft and interest to a salad.

Escarole: Batavian Full Heart

The broad, thick outer leaves have a sharp, bitter flavor, to contrast with the mild heart. The bitterness can add a counterpoint to a green salad, or to soften it, saute the leaves in a little oil for a warm, wilted salad. It can also be added to soups and broths.

Sugarloaf

Sugarloaf is the sweetest of the chicories and a good place to start when trying bitter greens. The heads look something like a romaine lettuce, with green leaves on the outside, blanching to a mild, crunchy heart.
