    This side dish has a very unique flavor! The ham and beans are good ole comfort food, but the addition of the mint and escarole add a deeper flavor of something more. This was definitely a more grown up dish, both kiddos didn't care for it but there are a lot of complex flavors going on. Thanks for the great recipe! Made for ZWT5.
