This paleo salad recipe is based on an amazing salad that I had at Frasca, a fabulous restaurant in downtown Boulder. Their salad had salami. In this salad recipe I replaced the salami with walnuts so that this would be a vegan paleo salad for those that don’t eat meat.

These paleo dinner recipes are great served along with this Radicchio Salad with Frisée and Apples:

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
