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 intense flavors battling for attention.

Tasted just like the escarole I had at a high-end local Italian restaurant!

I'm giving this recipe four stars for flavor, although I did add several cloves of chopped garlic, however, I'm giving "escarole" in general one star. My daughter had a similar dish at a friends and loved it, so she asked me to make it for her. I don't know what went wrong, but my escarole came out tough and chewy. I don't claim to be escarole savy, but I certainly cooked it long enough. If anyone out there has any suggestions, I would certainly appreciate it because we honestly couldn't even finish it. Again, the flavors were great Tammy and I'll give this another try if I can find a way to tenderize the leaves.
