Jamie says: My Mom makes the best escarole salad. Escarole is almost a treat for us because a lot of Publix stores do not have escarole. (However, if you ask, they will special order it for you.) Anyhow, the new, big Publix had escarole this week, and we bought it. I modeled my salad after my Mom’s escarole salad except that I added shrimp and slices of whole grain bread. It was good and satisfied my hankering for escarole, but it wasn’t that filling (dinner part 2 continued right after).
To make this salad, wash and tear escarole. Add minced garlic, lemon juice, and sea salt. Top the salad with chilled cooked shrimp and slices of whole grain bread.
Nutrition note: Seven medium shrimp count as a 2 oz serving from the meat & beans group. About 5.5 oz is the recommended daily serving from the meat & beans group.
