Grilled Radicchio with Goat Cheese

Inspired by a log of goat cheese and fresh radicchio (a cousin of chicory leaf) I created this super quick and delicious appetizer that can go with grilled chicken or be served on it's own.  These are best cooked on a hot grill but can also be cooked under the broiler for 2-3 minutes per side if preferred.


1 head of radicchio (the outermost leaves removed)
5 oz. goat cheese
Olive oil

1. Carefully peel each individual leaf off of the radicchio bulb.
2. Wash under cool water and gently pat dry with a paper towel
3. Sprinkle goat cheese evenly in the "cup" of the leaf
4. Roll the leaves to form a protected pouch for the goat cheese and secure with a toothpick
5. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt
6. Heat grill
7. When grill is hot carefully place the radicchio on the grill and cook 2 minutes per side until green is wilted
8. Remove from grill and serve!
