Endive is a slightly bitter leaf vegetable that technically belongs to the daisy family. The two main varieties are curly endive (also called chicory or frisee) and escarole.

Endive is a great source of fiber, folate, manganese, and vitamins A, C, and K. One 1/2 cup serving provides only 4 calories, but 72% of the recommended daily value of vitamin K! Vitamin K plays an essential role in blood clotting and also helps to build healthy bones. (See more endive nutrition facts on

Endive can be stored in a plastic bag, in the coldest part of the refrigerator for a day or two, however it will wilt quickly and should be used as soon as possible.
