Radicchio and spinach salad

Radicchio and spinach make a great colorful salad. Radicchio has a pepper-like flavor and adds texture to salads. It tastes a bit bitter so don't use it in large amounts.



  •     1 small head radicchio
  •     3 oz. baby spinach
  •     1/2 cup chopped and roasted walnuts


  •     2 tbsp olive oil
  •     3 tbsp orange juice
  •     1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  •     1 tsp Dijon mustard
  •     1 large garlic clove, chopped
  •     pepper to taste

Wash the radicchio leaves and dry them with a kitchen towel. Cut them in strips. Place them in a bowl. Add the spinach with walnuts on top.

In a small bowl, mix all the dressing ingredients.

You can prepare this salad one hour before dinner and keep it in the refrigerator until serving.
