Radiccho is one of my fav vegetables. I actually fry mine-up with a little garlic, pine-nuts and red onion and lemon. I like combination, and I'll put this on my list to do!

A work of art, Angie! Have to admit, never would of thought of kiwi for a salad dressing but it certainly makes sense -- and it looks great!

Kiwi in a vinaigrette, super idea. Delicious with the bite of the radicchio. Such a petty looking salad.

FOODESSA 3/1/12 15:07

Coincidance...kiwis are in my fruit basket this week. A vinaigrette created this way would be a perfect complement to any salad. Thanks for the inspiration Angie.

Here's wishing you many more inspired and creative moments to share with us in the newest year ;o)

Ciao for now,
Claudia

Eva kitcheninspirations.wordpress.com 3/1/12 15:12

Happy New Year!
The colours in this salad are spectacular, Angie. I really don't love Radicchio so I'd probably use a smaller portion (so that I could still get the splash of colour) with some other lettuce, like Boston Bibb (Butter Lettuce).

[Reply]
Claudia 3/1/12 15:26

The kiwi vinaigrette has me smitten. Yes, I feel stuffed and yes - this is the antidote. Lovely.

[Reply]
motherrimmy 3/1/12 15:29

I've never seen Physalis fruit. Time to do a google search and see what it is. I love the slightly bitter taste of Radicchio. Very colorful salad!

[Reply]
Heather @ girlichef.com 3/1/12 15:53

This is a stunning salad, Angie. I could really go for it right now. I'm actually feeling the need to eat lighter and healthier after all of the heavy holiday food. Delish!

Velva 5/1/12 22:46

A good fresh salad dressing always rocks....Love it. I often blend radicchio with other lettuce greens because of its natural peppery taste, but you took care of that with the kiwi dressing. Nice.

Happy New Year!
