Grilled Radicchio or Endive
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. This also is wonderful with celery grilled.
3 heads radicchio or endive (or both)
Protect the delicate tips from burning if using a gas or charcoal grill by laying down a piece of foil across the center of the grill. If using a stove top grill pan, it will work without the foil. Halve the heads of radicchio or endive lengthwise. Drizzle cut sides with oil and sprinkle with salt. When grill is hot, lay leafy end of each half on the foil so that the bottom half lies directly on the grill rack but the delicate leaves are protected by the foil. If using a grill pan, place directly on the pan. Grill until lightly browned and leaves are slightly wilted, about 2-3 minutes per side. Serve as is, or if desired serve with blue cheese, pepper and a drizzle of balsamic.
