Crisp and colourful, Radicchio is a popular addition to many salads because of its bright colour and unique flavour. Available as part of Tripod Farmers Group’s Salad mix and on its own, as a full head variety.
Flavour and texture
With its crunchy burgundy leaves and contrasting white veins, Radicchio is a vibrant, versatile leaf.
When eaten raw it has a distinct and sharp flavour to give cold salads a extra flavour dimension. When it is cooked, the flavour mellows and softens.
Radicchio is vitamin rich and full of antioxidants. It is a source of Vitamin C, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Vitamin B-6, Folate, Vitamin A, and Vitamin E.
Cooking and Food Pairing
Radicchio combines well with salty and sweet flavours and can be served raw or cooked with many dishes. We suggest using it in risottos, tossed through hot pasta or simply grilled.
