Market Mondays: Radicchio And Winesap Salad


A trip to the Union Square Greenmarket for this week's edition of Market Mondays led to a bag brimming with radicchio, parsley, winesap apples, and aged farmstead cheese. Back at home, the purchases were washed, cut, and quickly tossed with caramelized pecans, extra virgin olive oil, dark chocolate balsamic vinegar (courtesy of the Filling Station), and a dash of salt and pepper. Bitter, tart, and sweet- all in one crunchy salad. Perfect for the uncharacteristically sunny, 60+ degree November day.

The misspelling did nothing to deter me from grabbing a head of radicchio
