This simple and magical combination of ingredients from Carlo Mirarchi includes Castelfranco (a mild radicchio), vincotto (aged vinegar) and the superb blue cheese blu di bufala. It’s a very Italian dish, but Carlo Mirarchi gives it a personal imprint by adding fish sauce to the dressing. Slideshow: Fast Italian Summer Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large bowl, combine the Castelfranco leaves with 3 tablespoons of the olive oil, the fish sauce and lemon juice and toss to evenly coat the leaves.

Step 2    

In a large skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil until shimmering. Add the Castelfranco and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until golden in spots and just wilted, about 2 minutes. Stir in the white balsamic vinegar.

Step 3    

Transfer the Castelfranco to plates and top with the cheese. Drizzle with the vincotto and serve with lemon wedges.

Notes

Castelfranco is a mild member of the radicchio family. It has pale yellow leaves with red speckles.

Suggested Pairing

Light-bodied, fruit-forward Dolcetto d’Alba.
