Ingredients

  • 2 white chicory , cut into quarters
  • 2 red chicory , cut into quarters
  • 1 small radicchio (rosso di Treviso), or extra chicory, cut into quarters
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp saba (reduced grape must, see tip below) or balsamic vinegar

Method

  • STEP 1

RECIPE TIPS
SABA

Saba, also known as vin cotto and mosto cotto, is made from whole pressed grape juice (or grape must) that has been cooked over a very low temperature to produce a sweet syrup. Used in both desserts and savoury sauces, saba is sold in Italian delicatessens and also at melburyandappleton.co.uk.

RADICCHIO ROSSO DI TREVISO

Radicchio rosso di Treviso is a long, thin, mild-flavoured variety of radicchio. Its peppery flavour becomes less pronounced when it’s griddled. You’ll find it in specialist greengrocers.
