Ingredients

Dressing

  • 2 tsp each: freshly squeezed lime and orange juice
  • 1 tsp each: whole grain mustard and honey
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Drop sesame oil
  • Large pinch kosher or sea salt

Salad

  • 1 large or 2 small heads radicchio, torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 3/4 cup ready-cooked chestnuts, broken into small pieces
  • 1 cup sharp (not creamy) cold blue cheese, crumbled

 

Directions

Place all the dressing ingredients in a small glass jar and shake to mix, or whisk together in a small pitcher or bowl.

Place the radicchio in a large bowl and pour the dressing overtop; toss patiently and well. Add the chestnuts and most of the blue cheese and toss again, gently but thoroughly, then tip into a serving bowl and sprinkle the remaining blue cheese on top; serve.

 

Serves: 4 to 6
