Bitter greens purge the liver and cleanse your arteries
Boil up some new Yukon gold potatoes, cut in pieces. I leave the skin on. Wash and trim a large head of endive and chop coarsely. Dice and fry a half pound of lean bacon. Combine ingredients in a large bowl. Season with pepper and a tablespoon of cider vinegar and lubricate with bacon drippings. Toss and garnish with chopped green onions and hard boiled eggs.

1. Recipe sounds better than 'purge and cleanse!' Thanks.

3. "Cleanse and purge" is probably just food myth
but the recipe is really tasty.

2. Where's the bitter greens?
Your subject line and OP seem to mismatch.

:shrug:

And really that sounds like classic german potato salad.

4. Endive
AKA escarole or chicory.

6. OK, well try this
I planted a crop of ruffly endive last fall and it's time to harvest. I did so for a meal last week, but it was so bitter (especially combined with the arugula rustica that's also ready to cut) that I was wary of serving it at dinner.

My spouse, however, who is a genius in the culinary field, came up with this and it was absolutely one of the best salads I've ever had:

He combined sesame oil, salt, sugar and verjus. He noted to me that he didn't have to put vinegar. Try a mix of this to your taste! I loved it.
