Escarole Siciliano

"This lemony salad is served hot from the wok. Escarole is a bitter green, but can be less so when grown shielded from the sun. In general, lighter green leaves indicate a milder flavor. Thinly sliced tomatoes are a great accompaniment. This recipe can be doubled. For a larger party, cook in batches."

I don't know if I'd call this a salad - It's more like a side dish or an appetizer. But that aside, it's really good! Between the escarole, the lemon and the kalamata olives, there are some inte...

This was my first time cooking escarole. It came out good, except that the lemon was overpowering. I agree with the previous post- halving the lemon juice would have made it much better.

This is great! Easy prep, fast, and very tasty.

Healthy, easy to make and yummy!! My only suggestion is to add a little garlic and red pepper to the oil before adding the Escarole and to reduce the amount of lemon juice to maybe a quarter of...

We loved this recipe. Did not think the lemon was too much, as mentioned by some reviewers but we did use Meyer lemons from our tree which are a milder flavor so maybe that is why. I did not see...

This was absolutely fabulous! We decided to add a little slivered garlic and a few red pepper flakes to the oil just before the escarole for a bit more zing. Nice and healthy, too!
