Sauteed Radicchio with Blue Cheese and Pistachios

Sauteed Radicchio with Blue Cheese and Pistachios

Serves:  8

4 slices bacon, chopped
2 heads radicchio, sliced (about 8 cups)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 small apple, peeled, cored and julienned
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup unshelled pistachios, toasted, if desired
2 ounces crumbled blue cheese (about 1/4 cup)


Cook bacon over medium heat in 10-inch saute pan about 6 minutes until crisp.  Transfer bacon pieces to paper towels and drain.  Add radicchio and salt.  Cook over medium heat 8 minutes or until radicchio is tender, stirring occasionally.

Toss radicchio with reserved bacon, apple and vinegar.  Sprinkle with pistachios and cheese.

TIP: For a vegetarian version, omit bacon, and saute radicchio in
1 tablespoon olive oil.
