Ingredients

  • 1/3  Cup  extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4  Cup  balsamic vinegar
  • garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1  Tablespoon  fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1  Teaspoon  finely grated orange peel
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  dried crushed red pepper
  • heads radicchio, each quartered through the core end
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1  Cup  pecorino romano, shaved

Directions

Whisk oil, vinegar, garlic, rosemary, orange peel, and red pepper together in a large bowl. Add radicchio and toss to coat. Leave to marinate for 15 minutes.

Heat barbecue or grill to medium heat. Drain marinade off the radicchio into a small bowl. Place the radicchio on the grill, season with salt and pepper. Grill radicchio, turning occasionally, until the edges are lightly charred and crisp, about 6 minutes.

Transfer radicchio to a serving platter, drizzle with reserved marinade, and sprinkle with cheese.
