Discover my Radicchio Salad recipe here. The red salad is extremely healthy. The bitter substances it contains stimulate digestion and support the liver, gall bladder and intestinal flora.
Radicchio is a type of chicory, recognisable by its beautiful red colour, which makes every salad a feast for the eyes.
This salad makes the evening round and your guests have a real pleasure. In this article I show you the right Radicchio salad dressing and give you tips for exciting combinations with vegetables. Good success.
1. Radicchio Salad Dressing
I would like to start with the dressing for the radicchio salad: The salad has a bitter taste and therefore tolerates a sweet dressing with brown cane sugar, honey or stevia. My simple dressing consists of white wine vinegar, mustard, salt, sugar and pepper and oil. Dijon mustard is the first choice for mustard, medium-hot mustard is ok, but does not taste too exciting. Put the vinegar in a cup or bowl, add mustard, salt, pepper and sugar and mix. The spices and mustard dissolve in the vinegar when stirred, creating a good dressing. Now the oil for the salad is still missing, here I explain to you today two variants of marinating salad, interesting because the basic tips for marinating salad come across so descriptive:
1.2 Radicchio Salad marinate – the Grandma Variant
My grandmother did not have a salad spinner. The salad was plucked small, washed clean several times in cold water, then placed on a sieve. This Variant leaves some water on the salad. If you would use a dressing prepared with oil for marinating, the dressing would hardly stick to the lettuce leaves. This is due to the surface tension of the water. If you don’t want to or can’t spin your salad dry, drain the lettuce leaves well and marinate with a vinegar stand: Vinegar, mustard, sugar, salt and pepper, if the leaves are well marinated, add the oil first and mix well again.
1.3 Radicchio marinate, the Kochprofi Variant
Professional chefs pluck the salad and wash it quickly in cold water. The salad is then allowed to go in the salad spinner once carousel and dries so well. Dry salad goes well with a ready-made salad dressing made of vinegar, salt, pepper, mustard, sugar and oil. This is because only the dry salad leaves accept the salad dressing with oil. I show the lettuce washing elsewhere, be careful with lamb’s lettuce, it needs a special treatment and lamb’s lettuce washing I show in a second article.
2. Radicchio Salad with Oranges
A very popular combination consists of radicchio salad and oranges. You can peel and chop the oranges or prepare really great orange filets, I have a video for you:

I combine the radicchio salad today with potato cubes and gorgonzola. I like this combination, oranges or goji berries would go just as well with it because it adds a sweet component. Other ideas for the radicchio salad can be found below:
