|California Vegetable Specialties Endive|
|Salt and freshly ground pepper|
Halve endives lengthwise, making sure to keep them from separating. Brush with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Place on hot grill, cut side down and grill for 6 minutes. Turn carefully and grill until just tender, about another 6 minutes.
(A ridged grill pan may also be used. Brush pan with olive oil before placing endive on it.)
May be served hot as a vegetable, or cold as a salad, with vinaigrette.
