A really simple salad that celebrates just a few special ingredients. The slight sweetest of the dressing offsets the bitter of the radicchio. You can make extra dressing, it keeps well and makes a really nice dressing for any salad, but goes particularly well with bitter or winter leaves.
If blood orange is out of season grapefruit would also work very well.
This makes a nice side salad or starter, cubed steamed beetroot is a nice addition to this as well.
small radicchio, washed and torn into bite size pieces
endive, cut into bit size pieces
parsley, roughly choppped
salt and pepper to taste
Sherry Vinegar Dressing
sherry vinegar or good quality red wine vinegar
extra virgin olive oil
In This Recipe
To make the dressing, measure ingredients into a jar and shake well to combine.
Peel your kohlrabi, thinly slice and cut the rounds into quarters. Peel your orange or grapefruit with a sharp knife, trying to remove all the pith. Slice into rounds and then each round into quarters. Roughly chop the almonds.
Place all your ingredients in a mixing bowl, keeping a few pieces of orange & the almonds back for garnish. Start with 2 tablespoons of dressing, gently mix, add more dressing if you need, taste for seasoning. Transfer to a serving dish or individual plates, garnish with almonds and blood orange pieces.
