Narrow, frilly, blanched leaves for a salad mix.
In the culinary arts, the word frisee (pronounced "free-ZAY") refers to a variety of endive with curly, pale-green or yellowish leaves.
What's wonderful about frisee is that it is the perfect accent for any salad. Its bitter flavor adds just the right balance, especially when paired with fruity dressings. Its puffy, cloudlike shape provides an appealing contrast to flatter lettuce leaves.
Similarly, its finer structure yields a different sort of bite, so that each mouthful of salad offers a variety of textures. Finally, its pale green to yellow color helps offset the preponderance of dark green in other lettuce leaf.
