Recipe: Radicchio Salad
Photo source: seasonalchef.com
Crunch! Munch! Lunch! Here’s an easy – and delicious – recipe that features antioxidant-rich radicchio, which, according to studies, boasts an antioxidant content that rivals blueberries and spinach — making it a “must add” to your next salad (including this one)! Scientists and researchers have found that antioxidants (such as vitamins E and C, and polyphenols), which are produced naturally in foods, potentially neutralize some of these free radicals, thereby possibly decreasing the amount of damage they can cause.
2 cups Radicchio, shredded
1/2 cup Carrots, chopped
1/4 cup Golden Raisins
1/4 cup Raw Walnuts, chopped
Balsamic Vinegar (to taste)
Fresh Ground Pepper (to taste)
Mix all ingredients together, then chill in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Then enjoy as a side dish with chicken (goes great with Gregg’s Beer’d Chicken Recipe) or as a light lunch or snack.
Am I the only one that looked at that picture and first saw a piece of stake?
LOL! I guess the radicchio was trying to deceive you, Vivianne! (Thanks for posting!)
