Planned-Overs
You’ll probably want to make more of the Parmesan walnuts than you need just so you have extras on hand to toss with pasta, rice and other grain dishes.
Purchasing
Look for curly endive with the other lettuce varieties in your supermarket. Pronounced “ahn-DEEV,” this curly green grows in loose heads of lacy, green outer leaves that curl at the tips. Its leaves have a prickly texture and slightly bitter taste.
