My Favorite Winter Salad: Radicchio Salad

November 28, 2010

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I want something light, healthy and flavorful. Radicchio Salad, with Walnuts and Pomegranates, is a wonderful combination of radicchio, romaine, arugula, apples, walnuts, pomegranate seeds and cranberries. Feel free to use whatever greens you have on hand, and be sure to mix them for color, flavor and texture. If you haven’t tried radicchio before, you should. It’s a red-leafed salad green that is slightly bitter. It can also be grilled or sauteed, but I love it in this salad. Add cooked turkey, chicken, pork or shrimp for a main dish salad.

Radicchio Salad with Walnuts and Pomegranates

Prep: 25 minutes
Yield: 6 servings
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon honey
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 head radicchio, cored and finely chopped
2 cup chopped romaine lettuce
1/2 cup chopped arugula leaves
1 Fuji apple, diced
1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup fresh pomegranate seeds
1/2 cup crumbled reduced-fat Blue cheese (goat cheese may be substituted)
1. Whisk together vinegar and next 4 ingredients; set aside.

2. Combine radicchio, romaine, arugula, apples, walnuts, cranberries and pomegranate seeds in a large salad bowl. Top Blue cheese and toss with dressing.

This sounds great! I'm always looking for new salad recipes since we tend to get into bagged salad with Ranch dressing ruts. I'll try it this week. I've never put pomegranate seeds on a salad, so this will be fun to serve.

[...] I also made a radicchio salad, a great nutritious salad that’s great for the winter. This salad was vibrant and colorful. It was a big hit during dinner! I couldn’t find any pomegranate, so we didn’t have it with the salad. I love nuts in my salad, so the walnuts added a great crunch. The arugula added a slight bitterness and the apple added a nice fresh sweetness to it. The radicchio and romaine lettuce added the crunch and freshness. We also added gorgonzola cheese so good! I also made the dressing and it was actually really good! I’m not a big fan of mustard but the honey balanced out the mustard. I found the recipe recipe. [...]
