Nope, that’s not red cabbage or lettuce… it’s radicchio! Radicchio is a type of leaf-chicory. It’s often used in salads because its wine-colored leaves add an enticing pop of color. While adding radicchio to salads is always a good idea in our book, there’s so much more that can be done with this beautiful veggie.

How to Grill Radicchio

Now that we know radicchio is deliciously good for us, let’s get grilling! You can grill radicchio on a charcoal or gas grill or indoors on a grill pan. Begin by quartering the radicchio to create wedges. Brush each side of each wedge with grapeseed oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill each side for about 3 minutes over medium heat. The radicchio should be tender and slightly charred when it’s finished. Serve warm as is or sprinkle with blue cheese crumbles or grated parmesan.
