Author Notes: This salad is ideal in the Spring/Summer months when the grill is fired up. Super easy, minimal prep and really fast. You can use any of the bitter greens; treviso, radicchio, or endive. When cooked these greens loose their bitterness and gain major flavor. Since I live in a small apartment and I dont have access to a BBQ. I used a grill pan. I hope to change peoples opinion of these bitter greens. As for this is not your average salad but one of richness. The creamy blue cheese really compliments the charred flavors.

Serves 2

  • 1 head of treviso
  • 1 bunch of watercress
  • 5 tablespoons of blue cheese
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • sea salt and fresh ground pepper
  1. Heat your grill or grill pan to med- high heat. Cut teviso in half and drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place face down on the grill. Allow to grill for about 3-4 minutes a side, depending on thickness. Wash watercress and place on the bottom of a plate. In a small bowl crumble blue cheese, add vinegar, olive oil and season. Taste and adjust to desired taste. Fan the treviso on the watercress and drizzle with blue cheese dressing around the plate. Finished! See how easy :) This would be great for entertaining.

Lovely. I would not have thought to use a red wine vinegar, but it sounds perfect here. Lately, I have been enjoying warm endive. Now you've inspired me to try treviso.
