Chicory Leaves in Oil (Hindbeh b Zeit)
2 lb (1 kg) chicory
1/2 cup olive oil
3 onions, sliced into thin rings
1 tablespoon salt [way too much!]
5 garlic cloves

Remove the outer yellow leaves from the chicory, then wash and shred
crosswise, very finely.
Immerse the shredded leaves in hot water for 2 minutes.
When almost tender, remove the leaves and squeeze out excess water between
the palms of the hand.
Set aside to cool.
Fry the onion rings in oil until golden.
Remove the onions from the oil and place the chicory in the same oil with
the crushed garlic and salt.
Sauté over medium heat for 5 minutes.
Pour some lemon juice over it and serve cold, garnished with the fried
onions rings.
