1 medium head of radicchio
1 large or 2 small sweet oranges, such as Navel or Valencia
1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons champagne vinegar
The zest of 1 large or 2 small oranges
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1. In a large bowl, toss radicchio and oranges.
2. In a small bowl, whisk vinaigrette ingredients. Pour over salad, and toss well. Taste it, and adjust seasonings as desired. Let sit for 20-30 minutes before serving so the radicchio becomes infused with the vinaigrette.
*Add thinly sliced fennel bulb and toasted pine nuts.
*Add crispy pan-seared prosciutto and toasted walnuts.
*Add sliced or shredded cooked chicken and crumbled blue cheese.
