Grilled Radicchio

Looking for something different to spice it up.  With warmer weather here, it's always cool to grill different hearty lettuces to make a salad or side dish really stand out.  The bitterness of the Radicchio stands up nicely to the garlic and citrus.  The creamy-nuttiness of the pecorino adds a terrific counterpoint to the dish.  Enjoy!

1/3 C. Olive oil
1/4 C. Balsamic vinegar
4 cloves garlic
1 Tbsp. Rosemary, minced
1 tsp. Orange peel, grated
2 Tbsp. Orange juice
1/2 tsp. Red pepper flake
1 head Radicchio, trimmed stem and quartered
Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 C. Shaved Pecorino cheese

Preheat grill, get it hot.

In a blender combine the first 7 ingredients. Blend to a vinaigrette (you may need to add a little water to correct the consistency)

Place the lettuce in a large mixing bowl. Toss in the vinaigrette, then add salt and pepper; let sit 15 minutes.

Place the radicchio onto the hot grill for about 3 minutes a side. You want the outer leaves to get a nice char. Remove and put on you platter, drizzle with remaining dressing and sprinkle top with cheese. Serve and Enjoy!
