  • Summary

    Radicchio is a type of chicory with an alluring bittersweet flavor. The variety called Treviso, so named for its growing region in Italy, has tapering, wine-colored leaves. Its charm increases exponentially when it's cooked—in this case, broiled—and tossed with a sweet balsamic dressing. Fresh basil and a dollop of creamy ricotta round everything out.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    • 5 garlic cloves, smashed
    • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
    • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided, plus additional for drizzling
    • 1 pound radicchio (preferably Treviso), quartered lengthwise, or regular radicchio, cut into 2-inch wedges
    • 1/2 cup basil leaves
    • 1/2 pound fresh ricotta
