Wilted Endive Lettuce with Orange, Dates, and Almonds
Experiment - I'm sure any other slightly bitter green would be equally delicious when paired with bright citrus and sweet dates.
- 1 head endive lettuce greens
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tsp orange zest
- 2 tbsp orange juice
- 1 tsp crushed chili flakes
- 2 tbsp almonds toasted and chopped
- 2 tbsp pitted dates chopped
- salt to taste
Heat olive oil in pan over medium heat until shimmering. Add garlic, and cook until golden and fragrant, about 2 minutes.
Add lettuce, orange zest and juice. Saute until stems are tender and leaves are bright green. Add chili flakes and season with salt.
Remove from heat and toss in almonds and dates. Serve warm.
