Italians love this vegetable for its pleasantly bitter taste and use it mainly in salads mixed with anchovies and seasoned with garlic, olive oil, and vinegar. The dish isn't very popular across the entire country but mainly in the southern regions, and most of all—in Rome. The puntarelle harvest takes place in spring, so don't miss​ your chance to sample thi​s exclusive Roman salad.
