Frisee is a type of endive. It has the same sort of bitter, nutty taste.

Quality Check

Select frisee that is green with no wilting. Avoid any signs of decay. It can be stored in a plastic bag in the fridge for up to five days.


Frisee can be used just like endive, make sure you wash the plant. It is a great addition to salads. Frisee can also be sauteed with a little bit of butter, lemon, and garlic. To stand up to the flavor try a salad with bacon. Finally, it can be a great balance to any sort of fruit salad. Try it with oranges!
