Radicchio is a new crop here at Red Wagon and will be a choice in the CSA share this week so I wanted to give a quick word on storing and using it. We grew a couple of varieties. One round and one more bullet shaped. I didn’t get a picture of the latter.
Radicchio will keep wrapped in a dry paper towel in a plastic bag in the refrigerator crisper for at least 10 to 14 days. Store radicchio unwashed. The leaves are really tender and bruise if they are stored wet.
I made this tried and true favorite salad of mine last night with radicchio.
I think this salad made with greens and radicchio would be great too.
What a fun road to go down! Try something new.
Have a great week.
