ROASTED BALSAMIC RADICCHIO

Radicchio is also good when grilled on a barbecue or in a stovetop grill pan. Oil the grill or grill pan and cook until wilted and slightly charred, turning occasionally, about 5 minutes.

ingredients

  • radicchio (about 1 pound total), halved through core end, each half cut into 3 wedges with some core still attached
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • High quality balsamic vinegar (for drizzling)

procedure

dish: salad
season: summer, fall

Preheat oven to 450°F. Rinse radicchio wedges in cold water; gently shake off excess water (do not dry completely). Place radicchio in large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with thyme, salt, and pepper; toss to coat.

Arrange radicchio wedges, 1 cut side up, on rimmed baking sheet. Roast until wilted, about 12 minutes. Turn over and roast until tender, about 8 minutes longer.

Arrange radicchio on platter and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
