The endive, a leafy vegetable, is actually a member of the daisy family. Often cooked or simply tossed raw into a salad, it's high in vitamins A and K, and is a great source of fiber. It comes in two varieties: the curly endive, also known as chicory or frisée, which has narrow, green and curly outer leaves, and the broad-leaved endive, also known as escarole, which has broad, pale leaves and a much less bitter flavor than it's narrow-leaved sibling.
