"One trick with escarole is to make sure you are using a sweet enough dressing to offset the bitterness. I accomplished that with a dressing of sherry and rice vinegar, and then, just to hedge my bets, I added some perfectly ripe peaches to the mix. The result was one of the best salads I've had in years." — Chef John

salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 small head
escarole, cut into 1-inch ribbons
goat cheese, crumbled
This is amazing! I have to admit, I didn't have escarole so I used spring mix and fresh spinach. Also subbed sherry cooking wine for sherry vinegar, because I had it on hand. Soooo good!
Used curly endive (frisée) since store was out of escarole. Liking the use of different greens for salads, getting tired of spring mix and romaine.
Didn't have the sherry vinegar - so substituted Bordeau Cherry Balsamic Vinegar. Didn't have peaches, so substituted strawberries. Delicious!
