Grilled Balsamic Radicchio Salad

Author: Canadian Living

Although grilling what's basically lettuce may seem unusual, it's a traditional Italian preparation — and delicious, too. Grilling wedges of this slightly bitter green enhances its flavour. Serve with Balsamic Sirloin Medallions or Peppercorn Thyme T-Bones.
