Yield: 4


  • 1/3 xup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons honey
  • sea salt, to taste
  • ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 red onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 650 gram head radicchio, sliced into 1/2-inch thick pieces
  • olive oil, to brush
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled


Make the dressing: Combine all ingredients (except onions) in a bowl; whisk until blended. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add onions. Allow to rest for at least 20 minutes before using to allow flavors to meld.

Preheat a charcoal grill, electric grill, or grill pan over medium heat. Brush both sides of each radicchio slice with olive oil. Grill for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until tender. (Grilling time will depend on your grill; watch the radicchio carefully so it does not burn.) Immediately slice into ¹⁄³-inch-thick pieces. Toss into dressing. (Don’t worry if radicchio falls apart.) Allow to cool slightly.

Place on a serving plate and sprinkle crumbled feta cheese on top. Serve warm or at room temperature.
