1/2 cup dry red wine
1 head Royal Rose radicchio, cored and finely chopped
2 cups cooked wild rice*
3 green onions, chopped, with some green tops

1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard

Parmesan cheese
Methods/steps
In small bowl cover cherries with wine and let soak, about 2 hours, or overnight. Drain cherries, discarding wine. In large bowl toss radicchio, wild rice, onion and parsley. Whisk together vinegar, mustard, oil, salt and cayenne in small bowl, pour over radicchio mixture and toss gently. Serve at room temperature with shavings of Parmesan cheese.

*Look for vacuum packed or canned ready-to-serve wild rice. Or simmer one cup raw wild rice with 3 cups water or chicken stock, covered, for 45 minutes until tender, drain.
