Radicchio Salad with Walnut Dressing

Walnut oil gives this salad a distinctly nutty flavor; it can be found in most grocery stores. Radicchio di Treviso has narrow, tapered leaves; radicchio di Verona leaves form loose, round heads. The varieties may not be clearly labeled, but the shapes make them easy to distinguish.

  • prep: 5 mins
    total time: 5 mins
  • servings: 4




  • 2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup walnut oil or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 heads radicchio, preferably Treviso (about 1 1/4 pounds total), leaves separated
  • 1/3 cup walnut halves


  1. Step 1

    Whisk together vinegar, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking until emulsified. (If using olive oil, you may want to warm the oil and walnuts first over low heat in a small pan for a few minutes. Then let cool to room temperature to infuse the oil with flavor.)

  2. Step 2

    Add radicchio to dressing, and toss. Divide among 4 serving plates, and sprinkle with walnuts.
