Cooking with Heinen’s | Sunny Citrus Salad

Winter is prime season for a citrus salad. During the winter most citrus fruits are at their sweetest and juiciest. The bright sunny colors will at least give us some hope of summer. Remember summer?

Chicories, which include red-leaved radicchio, Belgian endive, lacy green-and-white curly endive, curly frisée, and lettuce-like escarole, are members of the lettuce family that share a slight, lovely bitterness. When paired with salty elements like blue cheese, ham or warm bacon dressing the salt lessons the bitterness creating a perfect balance of salt, fat and acid. When chicories are cooked the bitterness is transformed into a nutty flavor. They are also well suited for grilling or as add-ins for soups and stews.

Store chicories and endives wrapped in a paper towel inside a plastic bag in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator are fresh for up to a week. They can still be used after a week—but discard any leaves that show signs of yellowing.
