Grilled Radicchio or Witlof Salad with Shallots and Dill

Grilled Radicchio or Belgium Endive Salad with Shallots and Dill

Bitter greens, there is nothing better. My favourites are Radicchio, that ruby red leaf, and Witlof, also known as Belgium Endive. They are great raw but can also be cooked. Today we grill Radicchio for a table top salad, although Belgium Endive could be used too.

Keep in mind that radicchio loses colour as it cooks, so the salad does not necessarily keep that ruby red colour. Never mind, it is delicious. This is a simple salad, highlighting the wonderful flavours of the radicchio or witlof. Riadicchio especially gains a special sweetness when grilled, and here it is accentuated with the olive oil, golden shallots and dill.

This is another of our Bittman salad recipes. You can browse the others here.
