Serves 4 to 6
- 2 large heads radicchio, quartered through the root end
- ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 1¼ teaspoons kosher salt
- 4 small Golden Delicious apples, cored and cut into sixths
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 4 ounces Gorgonzola or other blue cheese
Preheat grill to medium heat. In a large bowl, toss the radicchio with 2 tablespoons oil and ½ teaspoon salt. Put radicchio on the grill, and cover. Grill until charred on one side, about 4 minutes. Turn, and cover again until marked, about 3 minutes. Uncover, and grill a few minutes more, moving the radicchio to char any spots that you’ve missed. Remove to a platter.
In the same bowl, toss the apples with 2 tablespoons oil and ¼ teaspoon salt. Grill, uncovered, turning frequently, until just tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove to the platter with the radicchio.
In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, remaining ½ teaspoon salt, and remaining ¼ cup olive oil. Drizzle over the radicchio and apples. Crumble the Gorgonzola over all, and serve.
