Grilled Radicchio with Balsamic Glaze and Blue Cheese

This recipe is a great way to add some extra flavour to your grilled radicchio. The balsamic glaze and blue cheese complement each other perfectly, and the dish can be easily adapted to suit your own taste.


  • 1 head of radicchio, halved
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Drizzle olive oil over radicchio halves, then brush to evenly coat.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, honey, salt, and pepper.
  4. Place radicchio on grill, and grill for 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until slightly charred.
  5. Remove from grill, and drizzle with balsamic glaze.
  6. Sprinkle with blue cheese, and serve immediately.

Potential changes & improvements

If you want a more intense flavour, you could try grilling the radicchio for a longer time. Alternatively, you could add more blue cheese, or use a different type of cheese altogether. If you’re not a fan of blue cheese, you could try goat’s cheese or feta cheese.

What other food it works well with

This dish goes well with grilled meats or vegetables. Try serving it with grilled chicken or steak.

Common Mistakes

One common mistake is not preheating the grill before cooking the radicchio. This will result in the radicchio not cooking evenly, and the cheese will not have time to melt properly.
