Radicchio Salad with Citrus, Dates, Almonds, and Parmesan Cheese
Sweet citrus and dates, in season throughout the West all winter long, pair beautifully with bitter radicchio. Tangelos and blood oranges would also work well in this recipe. Prep Time: 25 minutes. Notes: Assemble the ingredients for this salad the morning of the party—segment the citrus, slice the dates, chop the almonds, shave the cheese into curls with a vegetable peeler—and then toss them together when you're ready to serve, to keep the dates from getting mushy. The dressing can be made up to 1 week ahead and chilled.
