Balsamic-Marinated Radicchio with Fresh Ricotta

ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 5 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided, plus additional for drizzling
  • 1 pound radicchio, quartered lengthwise, or regular radicchio, cut into 2-inch wedges
  • 1/2 cup basil leaves
  • 1/2 pound fresh ricotta

procedure

dish: side
season: fall

Preheat broiler. Whisk together vinegar, garlic, lemon juice, 1/2 c oil, and 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper in a large bowl.

Put radicchio in a 4-sided sheet pan and toss with remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Broil 5 to 6 inches from heat, turning occasionally, until slightly wilted, 3 to 4 minutes.

Add hot radicchio to balsamic marinade, gently toss to coat. Cover bowl (to keep heat in) and marinate, tossing once or twice, at least 1 hour.

Transfer radicchio to a serving dish, pouring some of marinade over top. Scatter basil over radicchio. Drizzle ricotta with oil in a small bowl and serve with radicchio.
