Radicchio: the cold season lettuce to love
This Radicchio is big and tender and lovely. Many of the heads have red blush or speckling. Their flavor is bitter mixed with an increasing amount of sweetness as cold truly sets in. Before the "b" word (bitter!!) sends you running, know that salads of bitter greens are a very simple way to tune up your digestion and are traditional to our ancestral cuisines. Give it a try, and feel free to mix with another milder green or create a dressing with some sweetness to balance the flavor.
