Grilled Radicchio

Serves: 8
WW Points: 1

2 large radicchio -- heads
3 tablespoons orange juice
2 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon orange zest -- grated
1/4 teaspoon black pepper -- freshly ground
3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
1 orange -- cut into 8 wedges

Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat a gas grill or broiler (grill). Position the cooking rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat source.

Pull off any wilted outer leaves from the radicchio. Cut each head into quarters through the stem end, leaving the core portions intact so the quarters hold together.

In a small bowl, stir together the orange juice, olive oil and orange zest. Brush the olive oil mixture onto the cut sides of the radicchio quarters. Sprinkle with the pepper and arrange the radicchio on the grill rack or broiler pan. Grill or broil, turning frequently, until tender, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Transfer the radicchio quarters to individual plates and sprinkle evenly with the salt. Place an orange wedge on each plate and serve immediately.
