Radicchio with Balsamic Vinegar

Serves: 4

1 ½ Tbsp Flying Olive Garlic, Lemon, Gremolata, a Combination, or a Single Varietal of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided

2 medium heads of radicchio, cut into quarters from top to stem

4 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced

¼ cup chopped flat leaf (Italian) parsley

3 Tbsp Flying Olive Aged Dark Balsamic Vinegar such as 18 Year Traditional or Denissimo

Salt

Freshly ground black pepper

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Pour ½ Tbsp Flying Olive Extra Virgin Olive Oil of Choice into a mixing bowl. Add the radicchio and toss to coat. Place cut side down in a large non-stick skillet and cook over medium heat until lightly browned. Turn the pieces over. Cover, place in the oven, and cook until tender, about10-12 minutes.

Heat the remaining Flying Olive EVOO in a small non-stick skillet over low heat and add the garlic. Cook until it is golden brown, about 2 minutes. Add the chopped parsley and stir. Turn off the heat and remove from the burner. Cool to room temperature.

Place 2 pieces of radicchio on each of 4 plates. Top with the garlic and parsley mixture. Drizzle with the Flying Olive Balsamic Vinegar of Choice and season with salt and pepper.
