Sweet-And-Sour Radicchio

Serving Size:Serves 6


  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Brennan's Cellars Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 large heads (about 1 1/2 pounds) radicchio, cored, each cut into 8 wedges
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons toasted pine nuts



An odd combination, indeed, but delicious. Seasoned in the style of a Sicilian agrodolce (acid-sweet) dish


Melt butter with oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and sugar. Sauté until onion is lightly browned, about 7 minutes. Add vinegar; stir to blend. Add radicchio, raisins, salt, and pepper. Cook until radicchio is just wilted, about 5 minutes. Transfer to serving dish; sprinkle with pine nuts.
