    Great flavours in one dish - endives, olives, lemon juice and capers. Serve as a side dish or with toasted bread, or even use to top a jacket potato. Makes two generous servings. If you can't find endives, use chicory or even rocket.

    Endive, chicory and radicchio make a bitter-sweet salad which is particularly good served after a hearty stew or to accompany a rich main course such as roast goose. Or just if you love bitter greens.
