Grilled Radicchio And Cambazola Cheese

Grilled Radicchio And Cambazola Cheese

Slowly grilling the radicchio softens the bitterness and amplifies it's sweetness.  The melted mild blue cheese on top makes this a luxurious and unusual side dish perfect with a rich meat like grilled steak or a roasted duck breast.

Ingredients

  • 1 Head Radicchio
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • to taste Salt and Pepper
  • 4 slices Cambazola Cheese (approx 4 tbsp or 4 oz)

Instructions

  1. Pre heat grill to medium heat.
  2. Peel off any brown outer leaves of radicchio and cut in half through stem so each half is attached to stem at bottom. Brush cut sides with olive oil, sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper (go easy on salt because the cheese is also salty) and place on grill, cut side down. Put lid on grill.

  3. Grill slowly until cooked through but still firm in middle, then flip over and top each half with 2 slices of the cheese and continue to grill until cheese is melted and serve. (Approximately 15 minutes total)
