Yellow Frisee


1 head

With curly, pale green or yellow, wildly serrated leaves, Frisée is not a lettuce but is in the chicory family along with endive. Satur then ‘blanches’ the heads in the field by putting caps over each head about 5 days before harvest, turning the leaves yellow in the center while making them more tender and elegant. We love it in the classic salad with lardons and poached farm-fresh eggs dressed with a vinaigrette, but is also delicious with julienned apple and hazelnuts and a bright citrus dressing.

Seal tightly in a plastic bag and store in the fridge, unwashed, until ready to use for up to 3 or 5 days.
