Cicoria Catalogna a Foglie Rastagliante
A Bosnian friend was in Italy last year and raved about a salad called Puntarelle a la Romana that she had there. I wrote to my sister (who lives in Genova) to find out what kind of Cicoria they use and today she sent me seeds. I will plant this afternoon and let you know how they do. Italians eat many varieties of Cicoria and this will be an interesting experience in trying to replicate this recipe for my friend Mira.
