Shredded Radicchio with Parmigiano-Reggiano

When purchasing cheese for grating, keep in mind that it is easiest to work from a piece large enough to hold onto. Excess cheese can be kept refrigerated, well wrapped in plastic, and used for snacking or in other recipes.

Ingredients

  • 3 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano or parmesan cheese (about 1 cup grated)
  • 1 to 2 heads radicchio, depending on size, about 1 1/4 pounds total
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Using the fine holes of box grater, grate about 1 cup cheese onto a plate.

  2. Remove and discard outer leaves of radicchio. Cut heads in half, and remove core. Using a sharp knife, shred radicchio.

  3. Place shredded radicchio in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and pepper, and toss well to combine.

  4. Divide the radicchio among four salad plates, mounding it up in the center of each plate. Sprinkle reserved Parmigiano-Reggiano over each mound, and serve.
