12 Days of Endive, Days 8 and 9

When last we saw Rachael, one of our fearless OnDivas, she was filling us in on all the reasons to include California endive in your diet. On Day 8, Rachael breaks down the difference between red and white (or pale yellow) endive. Can you guess what it is?

On Day 9, Rachael recounts all the different names that endive goes by. What you may not realize is that endive grown in California is purported to be less bitter than its European ancestors. However, it still packs a nutrient-dense punch!

And don’t forget you have a chance to win a shipment of freshly packed California endive just for sharing your favorite dip recipe at the Saucy Dipper. Visit this Dipstock post for more information!
