This delightful winter salad combines in-season pears with a hearty radicchio leaf for an explosion of flavor that's much greater than the sum of its parts. Crushed red pepper and creamy gorgonzola cheese round out the profile. Serve this alongside a steak, a porkchop, or another main that can stand up to the bold flavors here. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 2

Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; stir with a whisk until well blended. Add radicchio; toss gently to coat and allow mixture to seep between leaves.

Step 3

Place radicchio wedges, cut sides down, on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; drizzle with any remaining vinegar mixture. Place pear wedges, cut sides down, on another baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

Step 4

Roast pears and radicchio at 400° for 12 minutes.

Step 5

Turn radicchio and pears over; roast an additional 12 minutes or until pears are golden and radicchio is browned.

Step 6

Place 2 radicchio wedges and 3 pear wedges on each of 4 plates, and sprinkle evenly with salt. Top radicchio evenly with cheese; serve immediately.
