Arugula Radicchio Goat Cheese and Pear Salad - Treat Yourself!

5 years ago

Have you ever stolen public property? My dad always told me that even if it's just a paper clip, if it doesn't belong to you, it's stealing. While I do feel guilty, my sorry habit doesn't come close to Winona Ryder's. So maybe there's stealing, and there's stealing?

When I stumble upon a fabulous recipe in a waiting room magazine, I usually don't leave without the recipe. This recipe comes from this month's Coup de Pouce, which I have subscribed to in the past in a bid to further my personal French immersion drive. My apologies to everyone who read the magazine minus this jewel. At least I'm sharing it via Jittery Cook. Maybe next time I'll leave my card.

Healthy Salad RecipeArugula Radicchio Goat Cheese and Pear Salad Ingredients

  • 4 c  baby arugula
  • 2 c trevigiano, a type of radicchio from Treviso in Italy
  • 1/3 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 pear, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 c dried cranberries (original recipe called for 15 prunes, pitted and halved)
  • 1/2 c lightly roasted nuts
  • 3 T chives, chopped
  • 4 oz goat cheese, divided into teaspoon sized servings
Healthy Salad Recipe
This unusual looking radicchio comes shaped like a torpedo. It had a nice bitter bite that compliments the sweetness of the pear, dried fruit, red onion and vinaigrette.
