This is my version of my favorite salad from a local italian restuarant. Unfortunately, the chef would not part with the recipe so this is my take.... Use good balsamic, good olive oil, and real Parmigiano-Reggiano in this recipe. Given the few ingredients, you need to use quality or the dish will suffer! —Tony S

What You'll Need
  • 1 head Radicchio
  • 1 large bulb Fennel
  • 1/3 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano shavings
  • 1/4 pound Proscuitto
  • 1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar (use white if you have it)
  • 3/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • Pinch Sugar
  • 1 Small Shallot Minced
  • Kosher Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper to Taste
  1. Core and slice the fennel as thinly as possible. Core and half the radicchio; slice into tagliatelle sized ribbons. Cut the proscuitto the same size as the radicchio.
  2. Mix vinegar, mustard, sugar, shallot, and salt & pepper together. Slowly whisk in olive oil or put all ingredients in a container with a tight fitting lid and shake to emulsify.
  3. Shave Parmigiano-Reggiano with a vegetable peeler and combine with radicchio, fennel, and proscuitto. Mix salad with enough of the vinaigrette to adequately dress. Let sit in refrigerator for 30 minutes, then serve.
