It’s a Chicory
This fluffy vegetable has a mildly bitter flavor and is often used in the special salad mix, mesclun. Frisee is a member of the chicory family, which includes radicchio, treviso, Belgian endive, green endive and escarole. It’s a fine-leafed endive displaying dark green outer leaves, paler yellow middle leaves and delicate white center leaves.
Frisee is a little wild in salads, lending its feathery burst of green color and mildly bitter kick to cold salads, warm salads, layered salads, composed salads and the salads of your imagination.
Choose Frisee with crisp leaves and no sign of wilting. Refrigerate in a plastic bag for up to 5 days. Wash just before using.
Royal Rose™ Frisee is available year-round.
