you so radicchio

It’s been a while since I’ve eaten something healthy for dinner. I blame you. Instead of sulking around, complaining that you continue to force me to indulge, I helped myself to a healthy dose of radicchio and herbs.

I used fresh tarragon, dill and parsley for greenery, and a vinaigrette of mustard, lemon juice, extra-virgin olive oil, and S & P. Though simple to prepare and minimal in ingredients, this salad is bold. For some, it may be “too herby” (you know who you are), for others the radicchio may be too bitter. But if you’re looking for a salad that is easy, healthy, and gutsy, this is it.

Plus, you’ll feel so good about yourself after eating it, you’ll wanna strut around in your underwear.

  1. Did you think about adding in mint or something to kinda play witht he bitter and counteract it. Just an idea maybe play with it, see if it goes anywhere.

      Mint would be an excellent option. It can be perceived as “sweet” and would add a nice brightness to the dish. The beauty of this salad is that there is no one way of making it, and there are no rules. Thanks for the comment!
