Prep time:


  • Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 3 heads Belgian endive, halved lengthwise
    • 1 large head radicchio, cut into 6 to 8 wedges
    • 1 head romaine lettuce, quartered
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar


This salad can be made on a regular barbecue grill or in a grill pan on the stove. 

Prepare the barbecue (medium-high heat) or heat a grill pan on the stove top.

Drizzle 1 tablespoon of oil over the endive, radicchio and romaine, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. 

Grill the lettuces until they are crisp-tender and browned in spots, turning occasionally, about 6 minutes. Coarsely chop the lettuces, then toss them in a large bowl with the remaining oil and vinegar. Season the salad, to taste, with more salt and pepper. Serve warm.
