Escarole has a slight, pleasant bitterness balanced by a sweetness. Use it in place of spinach, like in this salad.

I LOVE this salad, I make it often and always receive compliments, my husband eats every tiny bit of pecans left in the bowl with the vinagrette. You have to try it! I make it with any greens I have on hand as I not always find escarole in my super market.

She did say 3 to 1, which is the proper ratio.
