Fabulous, simple dressing. Do NOT apply more than ~30 min prior to serving or you will have sloppy salad. Also, almonds toast in half the time listed so watch them to be sure they don't burn. Overall, a well dressed, delicious and different salad. We paired it with a white Bordeaux (Chateau Ducasse 2014) and it was superb!

I wonder why this is called radicchio and orange salad? No oranges or orange juice included in the recipe...

The dressing is very tasty, but there is no way you can dress the lettuce up to 24 hours in advance. I did it just 30 minutes before serving, and the lettuce looked awful. when I put the salad in the serving bowl.
