Lay out a clean kitchen towel and place the escarole in the center. Gather up the sides, then twist the towel and squeeze out as much water as you can.
Heat a large heavy skillet on your stove until hot. Add olive oil, garlic, pepper flakes and sautée until the garlic just starts to turn golden. Add escarole, raisins and salt; mix well to make sure all of the garlic bits are mixed in evenly. Cook for 5 minutes. You can serve this dish hot or at room temperature.
