PGI salad of radicchio baked with oranges, nuts, raisins and Taleggio. Today a light meal, delicious, very easy to prepare, with a precious season vegetables: late red radicchio di Treviso IGP. Sweet and crunchy, fresh and juicy, the radicchio is completely different from his' colleagues’ they have a very bitter taste. Guardate come è semplice da preparare nella VIDEO RECIPE on my YouTube channel.

Is’ An unusual salad perfect for holiday menus. I have always loved late radicchio and since I was in the Treviso area to see the production (long, complex and delicate, take a look ITEM DEPTHand to the VIDEOhow it produces the radicchio di Treviso IGP and you will be surely surprised) I appreciate it even more.

I confess that the radicchio I never really loved baked: gives off a bitter note and lose crunchiness. I love it raw in salads, with nuts, balsamic vinegar and Gorgonzola, but in Treviso I tasted it in the oven and I thought of replicating it by enriching the recipe with Navel oranges and a delicious and tasty sauce, sweet and sour sauce, made with dark soy sauce, traditional vinegar of Modena Dop, honey and olive oil. On other occasions Instead of raisins I added pears And the result was fabulous.

This salad of radicchio PGI baked, oranges, nuts and raisins is served warm and is also very good in vegan version, without the cheese: if you add the Taleggio, as I did, You will make this salad a single dish well balanced. You can also use gorgonzola or an unseasoned pecorino. Or, decreasing doses, You can serve as an elegant appetizer and different from usual, maybe even in one of the holiday menu. And because you understand that I love very much radicchio, have a look at all my RECIPES WITH LATE CHICORY! Bon appétit!
