Roasted Radicchio Wedge

Radicchio 

Maybe you’ve seen it in the produce section and are captivated by it’s beauty and wonder how you could incorporate such a colorful food into your dinner?

It resembles a baby head of purple cabbage but once you get to know it, realize it’s not like cabbage at all!  The loosely packed leaves tend to have a bitter flavor so when using raw, I always use sparingly in salads and as garnish.  Once you cook the radicchio, it’s bitterness mellows and a nutty flavor develops.  I decided to roast mine this week and created a wedge salad of sorts.  I topped it with blue cheese, walnuts and a tangy balsamic glaze that also helps cut through the naturally strong flavors of radicchio.

 

See the beautifulness?  

 

Even more mesmerizing when you quarter them into wedges!

 

Drizzle California Olive Oil over all the wedges and toss to coat

 

Place the wedges on a baking sheet and dust with salt and pepper.  Roast for about 12 minutes

 

Transfer the wedges to a bowl and drizzle with balsamic glaze

 

Chop up the California walnuts

 

And top the wedges with the walnuts, California Blue Cheese and chives

 

It’s perfect served alongside a nice hearty pice of flank steak, cut into strips

 

Enjoy!

 

Here is the quick and easy recipe for ya…
