Sauteed Radicchio with Pears

A skillet of radicchio, red onions, and pears are finished with a simple splash of walnut oil and balsamic vinegar. If you have the time, double the onion and caramelize it first to add a bit more elegance to the dish.

Sauteed Radicchio with Pears

 

2 tablespoons (15mL) extra virgin olive oil
1/2 large red onion thinly sliced
2 heads radicchio, thinly sliced
2 small ripe bartlett pears
Dark balsamic vinegar, for finishing
Roasted walnut oil, for finishing
Fine sea or Himalayan salt to taste

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until it starts to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the radicchio and pears, and continue to cook until the pears are tender and the radicchio is wilted, about 3 minutes more. Splash the mixture with the balsamic vinegar, and cook just for 1 to 2 minutes until it is caramelized and thickened. Arrange the mixture into a serving bowl. Toss with walnut oil and salt. Serve warm.
