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.
