This is answer to a recipe request and I'm glad that they requested it. I love greens and this looks like a great new way to eat them.

MG, I love greens too, I should have been born in the South. I used fresh escarole and caugt it at the right time because it wasn't to bitter either. And I made some with the vinegar and some with lemon juice, I prefer them both :-) Thanks for an easy, delicious recipe.
