Where can I get chicory greens? I never see them at the store.

My grandmother used to grow chicory in her garden and I can remember eating it at her house when I was a kid. I liked chicory back then and would love to try it again. I would grow it myself but I have the opposite of a green thumb, more of a black thumb.

I like to fix a super simple salad of chicory greens and straight balsamic vinegar, not vinaigrette but vinegar. Just two ingredients in their simplest form (vinegar is close at least).

I have tried this salad with more ingredients but it doesn't benefit from being complicated. It is about two flavors contrasting and conflicting with one another. There is no need to stuff the salad bowl with a bunch of other flavors and textures when they will just detract from what is already there.

I love to have chicory and mustard green salads because the two greens blend wonderfully well together. You get the almost sweet bitterness of the mustard green followed by the spicy pepper taste of the chicory. It is a flavor explosion.

I know too many people who only eat salads of iceberg, or romaine or maybe spinach when they want to feel healthy. And there is nothing wrong with those but there is a world of other salad possibilities you can choose from if you open your mind up to greens. Chicory is a great place to start. It has a unique but accessible flavor and it pairs well with lots of other things.
