Escarole Salad Recipe

Crisp Escarole Salad Recipe:

: This is such a big hit whenever I make it. It’s so simple and takes almost no time to prepare. Crisp peppery watery escarole that’s a bit bitter and cold, dressed with a hint of garlic. Fresh lemon juice will give bright acid that the escarole craves. Coarse sea salt will balance it all out with a quick whisk a touch of extra virgin olive oil. Ummmmm.


  • 1 head of fresh escarole cleaned and cut into med-large pieces. Escarole can be very sandy/dirty so clean well and dry. It can be left a little wet.
  • 2 cloves of fresh garlic sliced very thin.
  • Less than ½ of a fresh squeezed lemon. No pits.
  • About 2 pinches of sea salt
  • About 2-3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.



  1. In a large bowl add the lemon juice, garlic, pinch of salt and extra virgin olive oil.
  2. Whisk for about a minute. It will turn nice and thick. Taste .taste. Taste. Adjust if needed, maybe a touch more salt, maybe a little more olive oil?
  3. Put escarole on bowl toss, add another pinch of salt toss again and serve.

This dish calls for more salt then you think.
