Farmers Market Feast: Grilled Radicchio with Nectarines and Parmesan

Radicchio di Treviso is a hearty Italian chicory known for its bitter and peppery flavor. When grilled,  its flavor becomes mellower and pairs perfectly with sweet nectarines and honey, spicy purple onion, and salty Parmigiano-Reggiano. Serve alongside a simple grilled steak or fish for a stunning summer meal.
