Frisee

Frisee is a type of lettuce in the chicory and endive family. It has a slightly bitter or peppery flavor and looks exactly like it sounds.
STORAGE TIPS: Gently shake off any excess water (do not wash first) and wrap in a flour sack towel (or paper towels) and put in an open plastic bag in the fridge.

CRISPY MUSTARD CHICKEN WITH FRISEE
I love the look and taste of frisee but have a hard time passing off “salad” to my children. I always love when I find a recipe that incorporates the greens into the main course like this one.

The sweet apples and creamy dressing balance out the peppery and slightly bitter flavor of the frisee in this complexly flavored (but easy to make) fall salad.

Za’atar seasoning is becoming more and more popular (because it’s amazing). It is available in most supermarkets or online or, if you don’t want to bother, just substitute Italian Seasoning.
