Radicchio and Warm Bean Salad

Pretty simple and and pretty good salad, with only one hitch.

Radicchio, cranberry beans, olive oil, salt, pepper, red wine vinegar. Marcella provides 3 options for the radicchio, even including Belgian endive. I had no choice - only the rounded radicchio was available.

The final result below. I'm not sure how you think it looks, but I can assure you the salad was very good.

What I liked about this recipe:

Hey, it's pretty easy to make & the result is very good. The taste of this salad is unique in my experience.

What I didn't like about this recipe:

You can't make this at the last minute, if using dried cranberry beans - & I've never seen fresh ones. The cranberry beans have to soak overnight.

Would I make it again?

Yes, I probably will in summer or early fall, using radicchio from my garden. It gives me a reason to plant a flat of radicchio this year.
