Learn how to make a lovely winter salad using seasonal ingredients! Crassane pears, radicchio and lardo are a perfect combination for a flavorful appetizer or an antipasto platter. Lardo will bring a very mild and creamy flavor without being greasy and the sweetness of the Crassane pears will balance very well with the bitterness of the radicchio. Chef Josh Posner impresses us again with this classic italian dish in this Grokker Premium video, part of his Seasonal Nosh series.

Cooking Recipe

Serves: 1

Ingredients:
2 crassane pears (or any juicy sweet ripe pears)
2 heads pink radicchio (can be substituted with chicory)
6 thin slices of lardo (can be substituted with prosciutto)
freshly ground black pepper
1 lemon (optional)

Directions
1. Cut the pears into quarters and cut out the core. Thinly slice the pears and arrange on each plate with care. Tear off the radicchio leaves and place over and under the pears to add depth and texture to the plate.

2. Peel off thin, elegant strips of lardo and drape them over the plate, twisting the strips as you place will add to the texture of the plate and give an added dimension. Finish off with a sharp grind of black pepper and if you want, a light squeeze of lemon to complement this sensational dish.
