This perennial leafy vegetable is essential to traditional Italian cuisine for its unique spicy flavor. Red in color, but offering health benefits similar to “green” vegetables, radicchio is a great source of antioxidants and phytonutrients. Actually a chicory despite its cabbage like appearance, radicchio is a great option for the adventurous eater who craves an authentic dish.
