  • Summary

    This is spectacularly easy, quite mouthwatering, and works as both a first course before an entrée or as a side dish. Escarole is part of the chicory family and has a pleasant bitterness to it. Note that while the outer leaves of the escarole are not used in this preparation, they should not be discarded.

    Ingredients

    • 1 head escarole, outer leaves removed and saved, thoroughly washed
    • Extra-virgin olive oil
    • Coarse salt
    • 1/2 cup pitted, crushed green olives
