    Rita~'s Note:

    Escarole is a bitter green, I just love it. This is a good introduction if you never had it. The raisins sweeten it. The beans give it a nice richness. The vinegar cuts down the bitterness and the salty capers and anchovies makes for a dish with lots of flavor. The optional ingredients are for those that are not vegetarians. Do rinse the beans, anchovies and capers well to remove excess sodium.

      This recipe is fantastic! The beans make the dish creamy and the raisins add a little sweetness. I didn't have golden raisins so I used the regular ones and it turned out great. I also didn't have any capers and left out the anchioves. I will make this dish many times again!! Thanks!!!

      Super! I just love bitter greens too, especially paired with white beans. I omitted the raisins because I'm not a big raisin fan but otherwise I made it just as instructed. I think the anchovies really add something special to the flavour so if you're a vegan you might replace them with some vegan worcheshire sauce. This is my new favourite "greens and beans" recipe! Thank you.
