Grilled Fennel with Radicchio
Also tossed with this week’s vinaigrette, this salad features a wonderfully-smoky flavor from the grill.
1 head radicchio, such as Bianca di Chioggia
3-4 fennel bulbs, fronds reserved and trimmed of tough ends
1 cup spring onion, thinly sliced, some of green tops included
½ cup Farm & Larder Cara Cara orange vinaigrette
1. Quarter the radicchio heads lengthwise, leaving the cores intact. Also slice each fennel bulb in half. Brush the cut sides generously with some of the olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.
2. Preheat grill to medium-high and oil the grill rack.
3. Place the radicchio and fennel, cut sides down, on the grill and cook, turning frequently, until browned and tender when pierced at the core with a knife, 8 to 12 minutes total. (Close the lid if using a gas grill.)
4. Allow fennel and radicchio to cool to room temperature, then transfer both to a platter and toss with onion slices and vinaigrette.
