Ingredients

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

    Grilling brings out the sugars in the lettuce and salad greens, tempering the bitterness and adding flavor.

    Preparation

    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.
