Try red leaves instead of green ones the next time you whip up a salad. This recipe uses radicchio, which is fat and cholesterol-free, and is rich in antioxidants.

Cooking Time: 20 mins
Ready In: 40 mins
- 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.
