Note: Radicchio is one of my husband's favorite "greens." It is actually chicory, that looks almost like red cabbage. It is very popular in Italy and has a slightly bitter taste. It is often eaten as a salad with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper. If you are trying it for the first time you can double the amount of lettuce and reduce the amount of radicchio.
