Red Winter Salad with Beets and Hazelnuts
This red winter salad with beets and hazelnuts has become a favorite in my house. It isn’t just pretty, it will nourish you. Like endive and another favorite bitter green, escarole, radicchio is a member of the Chicory family, and is rich in cancer fighting vitamins as well as an array of minerals. Just what we need to stay healthy in the winter! Although the concept of red greens seems to be a bit of a reach, once you’ve sampled bitter red radicchio paired with the endive, sweet red beets, and mellow toasted hazelnuts in this great tasting winter salad, all becomes deliciously clear!
