Best Grilled Radicchio

Grilled Radicchio 150 Image by: Grilled Radicchio 150 Author: Canadian Living

Radicchio has a delicious bitter edge that softens slightly when it's grilled. It makes a tasty side dish, either simply dressed alongside grilled meat, poultry or fish, or shredded to make the salad variation (below).

Ingredients

  • 2 radicchio lettuce
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Method

Leaving cores intact, cut radicchio in half (cut large heads into quarters); thread onto skewers. Brush with half of the oil; sprinkle with half each of the salt and pepper.

Grill, covered, on greased grill over medium-high heat, turning often, until wilted and lightly browned and centres are softened, about 10 minutes. Transfer to platter. Drizzle with vinegar and remaining oil; sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper.
