Ingredients

  • 1 cup wheat berries, cooked according to package directions
  • 2 handfuls baby spinach
  • 1 apple, sliced
  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • 1/3 cup blue cheese
  • 2 tablespoons herb-infused olive oil (or olive oil with a rosemary sprig)
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 small head radicchio, cored and cut into bite-sized pieces

Directions

Toss the all of the ingredients together except for the radicchio in a large bowl. Meanwhile, heat a pot over medium-high heat. Add the radicchio and cook until brown. Combine the radicchio with the rest of the ingredients. Serve.

Radicchio Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Radicchio Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.
