Grilled Fennel and Radicchio

Prep time 15 mins
Stand time 5 mins
Grill time 16 mins
Yield Makes 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 fennel bulbs
  • 3 heads radicchio
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Vegetable cooking spray

How to Make It

  1. Cut fennel bulbs lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices, keeping core (root end) intact. Cut radicchio into eighths, keeping core (root end) intact. Place fennel and radicchio in a single layer in an aluminum foil-lined jelly-roll pan.

  2. Whisk together orange juice, next 3 ingredients, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Gradually whisk in oil. Reserve 1/2 cup vinaigrette for later use. Drizzle remaining vinaigrette over fennel and radicchio, and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 tsp. salt. Let stand 5 minutes.

  3. Coat cold cooking grate with cooking spray, and place on grill. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high). Place fennel on cooking grate, and grill, covered with grill lid, 5 to 7 minutes on each side; remove fennel. Add radicchio, and grill, covered with grill lid, 1 to 2 minutes. Toss fennel and radicchio with reserved 1/2 cup vinaigrette.
