This dish is usually served alongside grilled meats. It is particularly good with a horsemeat steak, which is very popular locally, as the bitterness of the leaves and the sour tang of the vinegar act as a good foil for the sweet flavour of the meat. It is also good with fried calf’s liver or with grilled cheese, for a lighter meal. This variety of radicchio is highly prized all over Italy and is used in a great many dishes, but another type of radicchio can be substituted if necessary.
