Radicchio and Apple Salad

Radicchio and Apple Salad

Who’s ready to kick the junk food after the holidays?! We know we are ready, so we’ve came prepared. This radicchio apple salad with parmasan cheese and croutons is where it’s at 🙂 If you’re really watching our macros or “clean eating” goals skip the croutons but the parsaman cheese does make this salad delicious as it pairs with the tangy Dijon vinaigrette. But the real question, are croutons really unhealthy if they are homemade? 

Raddichio Apple Salad

We used a combo of castelfranco & radicchio but feel free to use any type of chicory you have on hand. 

  • Radicchio di Chioggia
  • Treviso
  • Castelfranco
  • Belgian endive
