Radicchio Rosso di Verona
I just had to bring home these oddly hypnotic radicchi: a late-season variety called radicchio rosso di
I also really like purple things.
Radicchio in Scapece
Radicchio di Verona, or other radicchio (I used about 1 pound)
White wine vinegar or unfiltered apple cider vinegar
Snipped dill (optional)
Heat oil in a large iron skillet. Cut the radicchio into eighths through the core so that the leaves hold together. If you are using smaller radicchi, cut them into quarters. Cook the radicchio in oil over high heat. As it begins to brown just a bit, add water and vinegar. For one pound, I added about 1/3 cup of each. Season with salt and snipped dill. Serve warm or at room temperature.If you having trouble telling one radicchio from another, see the Radicchio family tree.
