Chicories and endives are the most useful and varied range of the salad plants and provide salad leaf all year. Many are extremely decorative, some being red, (pink when blanched) and many are red and green variegated and the frizzy endives are particularly attractive. Large-leaved endives are deliciously cooked lightly in butter.
