Gorgonzola Radicchio Salad with Orange Vinaigrette

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2011 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com

Like arugula, this bright purplish red radicchio has a slightly peppery and bitter taste. It is loaded with nutrients and has no fat or cholesterol. The salad, a perfect blend of sweet, sour, salty and bitter, tastes so crispy, really flavourful, and easy to throw together.

Orange VinaigretteSalad
  • 60 ml Orange juice
  • 2 tbsp White balsamic vinegar
  • 80 ml Olive oil
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp Honey
  • 1 tbsp Sesame seeds, roasted
  • Freshly ground black pepper and salt, to taste
  • 1/2 Radicchio, torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 100 g Gorgonzola, cubed
  • 1 handful Arugula leaves
  • 100 g White grapes, seedless
  • 1/4 Mango, diced
  • 1 tbsp Sundried tomatoes, diced
  1. In a small jar with a tight-fitting cover, combine all vinaigrette ingredients. Cover and shake well until blended. To store, refrigerate for up to 1 week. Shake well before serving.
  2. Combine all salad ingredients in a large salad bowl.Toss with orange vinaigrette. Serve with a glass of Chardonnay for a pleasant and light lunch.

How pretty! A wonderful example of how a salad can be way more than iceberg lettuce. Thanks!

Finla 1/10/11 14:57

Wowo what a colorful and delicious salade.

how much orange juice to use in your orange vinaigrette recipe cos orange juice is not listed? thks

Belinda @zomppa 1/10/11 15:36

Not usually a fan of too tart and bitter, but you make this look so inviting and delicious!

Angie's Recipes 1/10/11 15:41

@Anonymous Oops.sorry for that..you need 60ml orange juice for the dressing. Thanks, Belle.

A delicious mixture of contrasting colors and flavors.

peachkins 1/10/11 16:45

I love salads and this salad is calling my name....

Nava K 1/10/11 17:17

I simply enjoy anything with veg, its so healthy and your sharing making me drool now.

Jeannie 1/10/11 18:02

Mmmm...that looks delicious! I love grapes in salad, give such a sweet taste to the salad.

Angie's Recipes 1/10/11 18:31

@Anonymous Belle, yes, the flavour would be different though...well, it won't hurt to experiment with other types of acids. Maybe it would even turn out better. You can use vinaigrette in different kinds of salads (I like them simply with lollo roso, arugula, or iceberg)...or cut down the quantity and make the half.

Carol @ There's Always Thyme to Cook 1/10/11 18:59

I love that peppery bite in a salad combined with the sweetness of the fruit. Fantastic flavors, it looks delicious.

Awayofmind Bakery Hoiuse 1/10/11 20:14

I love bread and salad to go with balsamic vinegar! Like to have a try on this healthy salad!

Cucina49 1/10/11 21:24

Great recipe--I have radicchio coming in my CSA box this week and this may be just the way to use it!

Rosita Vargas 1/10/11 21:42

Exquisita vinagreta de naranja es agridulce y queda todo muy bien complementado en especial con la pimienta,se acostumbra más con limón,ésta versión es realmente buena,abrazos hugs,hugs.

Rylan - Art and Appetite 1/10/11 23:24

Angie, I am so using your orange vinaigrette here. Seriously! I just recently turned vegan and I'm soooo in need of new recipes. I've been looking here and there and now I am on your site for a long time!!! Goodness, can I just have you as my personal chef? Anyways, did I mention that I tried your olive and milt pesto? My gosh! I SOOOOOO SOOOO LOVED IT! I am growing mint and have used your recipe twice. Amazing as usual! LOVED IT! Thanks, Angie!

Rosa's Yummy Yums 2/10/11 02:19

A delicious looking salad! Lipsmackingly good.



Carolyn 2/10/11 02:20

I wish various greens like raddichio were easier to find around here. As it is, I can only find them in mixed salad greens, I can't just buy them on their own. Wish I could make your lovely salad!

Unknown 2/10/11 04:54

Angie this salad sounds and looks wonderful!!!

createwithmom 2/10/11 05:16

Sam Hoffer / My Carolina Kitchen 2/10/11 12:12

What a beautiful salad Angie. I'm intrigued by your orange vinaigrette. I make salads so often I'm called the salad queen in our family. Will definitely give this a try.

Have a happy week.
:-) Mandy

ann low 3/10/11 15:57

I wish I can stay near you Angie. So I can have healthy salad almost everyday :D


Oh wow, that looks so healthy and colorful! I adore grapes in salads. :)

Eva @kitcheninspirations.wordpress.com 3/10/11 16:45

Gorgonzola is one of my favourites. Having it in such a fresh salad sounds amazing. I have always loved the peppery-ness of arugula, but not the bitterness of radicchio. I suppose one can just leave it out, the other ingredients would more than compensate for the loss.

Ma What's For Dinner 3/10/11 17:01

I looooove all the flavors going on in here!!! Yummy! This is my kind of salad!

Elisabeth 3/10/11 18:16

I absolutely love your radicchio, gorgonzola salad, Angie! The orange vinaigrette is so perfect to cut the bitterness of the radicchio, and the sharpness of the cheese, to mellow, and balance the two. Yumm!

BTW-Did you purposely want the title spelled the way you did?...Shouldn't it be RADICCHIO?...(here I am, meddling again)...sorry if I'm wrong!

SavoringTime in the Kitchen 3/10/11 18:32

What a beautiful salad, Angie, and the dressing sounds so good!

Susan 3/10/11 19:12

I love the Orange Vinaigrette! I've made Lime before, but will definitely try this one!

Puja 3/10/11 19:18

Crisp n so fresh looking! Lovely salad!

Geni 3/10/11 19:27

I can see with both had salad on the brain this weekend. Your photos are much better than mine though...always stunning! Salad looks delish. as well. :)

kankana 3/10/11 19:37

The idea os orange vinaigrette is so perfect for this salad..the sweet taste with the peppery taste will blend so perfectly!

Liz That Skinny Chick Can Bake 3/10/11 23:28

Mmmmmm....I love salads full of a variety of textures and flavors and this one fits the bill perfectly!

Tanantha 3/10/11 23:52

This looks refreshing and I like the combination of ingredients in the dressing.

Reeni 4/10/11 02:57

What a beautiful salad! I love strong flavors in my salads and with the sweet orange vinaigrette this is perfect!

Mother Rimmy 4/10/11 05:49

Grapes, sun-dried tomato, mango, orange - you are truly a creative genius when it comes to food combinations. Wonderful!

Angie's Recipes 4/10/11 05:58
