Radicchio Sangria Salad


Description From Chef Brandon Miller

1 cup fruity red wine
1 cup mixed dried fruit- i.e. raisins, cherries, apricots etc.
3 Tablespoons sugar
2 each oranges, zests and juice
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 cup pure olive oil
Salt and pepper

2 heads  Royal Rose™ radicchio cleaned, and torn into bite-sized pieces
6 oz Manchego cheese

In a small sauce pan combine wine, dried fruit, sugar, orange zests and juice. Simmer over medium heat for ten minutes until fruit is plump. Strain out the fruit and continue to reduce liquid to ½ cup, cool. In a blender put cooled wine, vinegar and blend. With blender running slowly add oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Dress the salad with desired amount of dressing. Sprinkle with wine-drenched fruit and shave cheese over the radicchio. Serve.
