Grilled Radicchio and Fontina RecipeThis delicious recipe has a strong, rich flavor. Best served with baked halibut or cod along with a few lemon wedges.

Ingredients

  • 1 ten-ounce head radicchio
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 ounces finely grated Fontina, Gruyere or Gouda cheese

Instructions

  • Keeping base intact, quarter radicchio so head opens out into four wedges. Combine vinegar, salt, pepper, and 1 1/2 teaspoon oregano. Whisk in oil. Brush half the vinaigrette over cut radicchio.
  • Place a grill pan over medium heat. Place radicchio, cut-side down, on the pan. Cover radicchio with a metal bowl. Cook 2 to 4 minutes, until leaves start to soften. Turn radicchio over and sprinkle with most of the cheese, leaving a little for garnish. Cover and cook on low heat until outer leaves are soft and cheese has melted, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Transfer to serving platter, drizzle with remaining half of the vinaigrette, 1/2 tablespoon oregano, and cheese.
