Radicchio Salad with Frisée and Apples

The other night I had the privilege of eating this amazing gluten free salad at Frasca, a fabulous restaurant in downtown Boulder. Their salad however, had salami, while mine, for a little hit of protein, contains walnuts.

I served this salad with dinner Sunday night while my 3 boys (2 children and husband) watched the NFL playoffs.  Dinner (and this salad) were a hit (even though the Jets lost).

    Wow Elena this looks delicious. For those of you looking for wonderful extra virgin olive oils and amazing balsamic vinegars with no sulfites please check out this web site fromolivesandgrapes@me.com

    I just purchased the fig balsamic and it is wonderful drizzled on fresh tomatoes.

    That looks so deliciously fresh! (I just ate half a block of Lindt 90% in one go, so my body is absolutely craving vegetables right now… :P)

    J! E! T! S! JETS! JETS! JETS!

    My boys couldn’t pull it pass Peyton this time.

    A little heartbroken, not gonna lie. :(

    But at least this salad will cheer me up.

    Look out for next year!

    Can’t wait to make this one! It was great meeting you on Saturday. Was wondering what you were eating/drinking?:) My 11 year old daughter made Purple Velvet Torte for a third time. We like to serve it and ‘trick’ people. Hope you have a great week!

      Hi LearningMama,

      Was so great to meet you too!

      I was drinking a blender salad –lots of greens and other good stuff.

      Hope you are staying warm in this chilly weather.

      Thanks for coming to my book signing.

    This salad makes my mouth water. Wish I didn’t already have my fridge stuffed with produce or I’d come up with a way to add this to the meal plans for this week!

    Hi Elana, the actual name of the lettuce is “frisée” or “frisee” (which means curly in French), not frisse :) The salad looks good nevertheless!

    I’ve seen radicchio at the store and was intrigued, but had no idea what I’d do with it. This gives me a reason to buy one. Thanks! The salami version sounds interesting too.

    I wasn’t a huge fan of the apples on this one, but turns out I like it very much! They added a fantastic texture that was unexpected. I don’t usually like unusual salads, but this was a hit. Kudos.

    Yum! I had radicchio leftover and no greens. So I made this without the frisée and also without the nuts (allergy). It was really tasty! Thank you!
