Radicchio, Goat Cheese, and Nut Salad


1 head radicchio, torn

1/8 cup olive oil

1 1/2 T cider or red wine vinegar

3/4 tsp sugar or honey

salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup (2 ounces) goat cheese (plain or flavored both work great - pepper goat cheese is one of my favorites to add to salads)

1/4 cup walnuts, pecans or almonds (toasted and coarsely chopped)


Mix olive oil, vinegar, and sweetener. Place radicchio in a bowl and mix with dressing. Crumble goat cheese and sprinkle on top with the nuts. Toss lightly. May serve immediately or refrigerate for serving later in the day, I reserve the goat cheese and nuts and add them just before serving.
