Can a salad be seductive? When it’s a warm salad, made with gently-wilted radicchio, still a little crunchy—dressed with rich buttermilk, verdant chive oil, and tangy blue cheese, it can! We heat the radicchio in a microwave to achieve a perfect in-between texture; then add toasted hazelnuts to bring deep, nutty flavor and a satisfying crunch. Freezing the cheese in advance makes it a breeze to shave curls of it over the salad just before serving. Click for the full Microwaved Radicchio Salad Recipe and get something started with this sexy starter!
