To make this delicious and simple salad special, it’s quickly popped in the oven to wilt the greens and melt the cheese.

  1. 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  2. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  3. Kosher salt
  4. Freshly ground pepper
  5. 1 large head of radicchio (3/4 pound), cored and coarsely shredded
  6. 5 ounces baby arugula
  7. 4 ounces semi-hard Italian cheese, such as Crucolo or pecorino Toscano, thinly shaved
  8. 1/2 cup hazelnuts, toasted
  9. Saba (See Note) or balsamic vinegar, for drizzling
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. In a large bowl, whisk the red wine vinegar with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Add the radicchio and arugula and toss well. Mound the salad on oven-proof plates and top with the shaved cheese. Arrange the plates on trays and warm the salads in the oven for about 1 minute, until the cheese is just melted. Sprinkle the toasted hazelnuts on top. Drizzle a little saba over the salads and serve right away.
Notes Saba, the Italian condiment made from reduced grape must, is available at specialty food stores and from igourmet.com.
