Winter Salad Recipe
This Winter Fennel & Radicchio Salad is simple to make, crispy and refreshing. Radicchio is a beautiful red and white leafy veg, like a mix between and ice burg type lettuce and a cabbage. It's related to chicory so it's slightly bitter which means it is great for digestion, paired with fennel which is also great for digestion, this salad is perfect to have as a side for those winter comfort meals, with a pizza, pie or frittata.
I love Pistachios and I love even more that you can buy them without the shell on now! They are such a tasty accompaniment to the Fennel and Radicchio and have an awesome array of health benefits including high levels of vitamin B6, vitamin E, polyphenols, antioxidants plus they are very high in protein for their size. I think I may love salads even more in the wintertime and this one is bangin'.
