Romaine and Radicchio Salad with Figs and Pecorino
Why This Recipe Works
After trying a few alternatives, we found that hearty romaine lettuce was able to hold its own next to the bitter, crunchy radicchio in this salad. Quartered figs contributed a necessary sweetness while toasted walnuts provided extra crunch and a buttery texture. Salty, tangy shaved Pecorino Romano cheese added richness that contrasted with the bitterness of the radicchio. We picked sherry vinegar as the base for our Foolproof Vinaigrette because it paired well with the sweet figs.
