My daddy came to America almost 50 years ago from Scafati, Italy to meet his pen pal my mommy. He brought this delicious salad recipe with him and told me " you havea to squeese it with your manos ".
Escarole (sqadool) Salad:
1 large head of escarole broken down and washed (really good) and dried
2 plum tomatoes diced
3-4 cloves of garlic diced finely
olive oil, salt, pepper and hot red pepper flakes (poobon) to taste  

squeese all together with your manos (mix with your hand and squeeze).
*please make sure to wash the escarole good because's it very sandy
**I served it with grilled chicken tonight to make it a perfect week night dinner for two
