Crunchy Roasted Beet and Radicchio Salad, a brilliant summer offering that is hard to resist.
My family spends the summer teetering on the fence between dietary endeavors and comforting summertime favorites.
It’s a tricky balance between what we want to eat, and what we should eat.
There are plenty of times, however, that what we want to eat is what we should eat.
Those occasions consist of dishes boasting bold colors, audacious flavors, ample texture, and lots of contrast!
Roasted Beet and Radicchio Salad packs a powerful punch. It truly covers all the bases as far as your tastebuds are concerned. Bitterness from the crunchy radicchio, spicy radish and red onion slices, sweet tender beets, cool crisp mint leaves, a little acidity from the vinaigrette, and a salty bite of queso fresco. What’s not to love?
Plus Roasted Beet and Radicchio Salad is visually bright and beautiful.
Radicchio has a dynamic effect on most people. It seems to be one of those veggies you either passionately love, or avoid at all costs.
One way to reduce the bitterness a smidge is to soak the radicchio in ice-cold water before serving. If you still can’t appreciate its bity crunch, red cabbage would be a good substitution.
Roasted Beet and Radicchio Salad would make a superb addition to any summer picnic. The texture of the radicchio allows it to sit for hours without wilting. Not to mention, the vibrant colors can hold their own against any fireworks display!
