  • 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.

  • 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.
