Warm Radicchio and Arugula Salad Recipe
- 1 head of radicchio
- 1 small bag of arugula
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp good olive oil
- salt and pepper
- 4 tbsp shredded or cubed Parmesan
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Rinse and dry your arugula and radicchio.
Cut the stem end off of your head of radicchio and then cut the head in half. Now cut out the thick core center and discard. Slice each half of the radicchio in half and separate the leaves out onto a large sheet pan.
Drizzle with your olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over the top.
Place in the oven to roast for about 10-15 minutes or until you start to see the radicchio brown on the edges but still has some shape.
Remove from the oven to cool for a few minutes.
In a large bowl add your arugula and scoop your radicchio from the sheet pan and place on top of your arugula. Pour the balsamic vinegar and olive oil from the sheet pan over top of the salad and gently toss.
If you are using any Parmesan you can add that now and serve immediately. (Original Recipe)
