Expert Tips

Radicchio, an Italian specialty, is no longer rare in U.S. supermarkets, but it's still pricey. Fortunately, you don't need much to add color and flavor impact to a salad. Radicchio resembles a small, softball-sized head of cabbage, with beautiful varigated leaves that range from deep ruby-purple to white. Its strong, slightly bitter flavor makes it an ideal accent in most salads, rather than being the main ingredient.
