Chicory (American term) or curly endive
A type of lettuce. The curly, ragged-edged leaves with long stems are dark green on the outside becoming paler towards the centre. The leaves are slightly bitter to taste.
Buy fresh crisp leaves. Avoid wilted or soft leaves with signs of discolouring.
Store in a plastic bag in the crisper of the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
Tips & Tricks:
Never store salad green near fruits like banana, apple and pear. They produce a gas which speeds up the ripening or deterioration process.
Wash and dry salad greens thoroughly using a salad spinner.
