Arugula and Radicchio Salad with Sesame-Scallion Vinaigrette

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 scallion
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 head radicchio
  • 1 bunch arugula
In a small skillet heat 1 tablespoon oil over moderate heat until hot but not smoking and cook sesame seeds, stirring, until pale golden, about 1 minute. Mince scallion and in a small bowl whisk together with sesame seeds, remaining tablespoon oil, vinegar, mustard, and salt and pepper to taste until emulsified. Tear radicchio into bite-size pieces and in a bowl toss together with arugula and vinaigrette.

Serves 2


from a reviewer: This is a fabulous recipe. The dressing is unusual and memorable. I've been serving it for years and ALWAYS receive raves from guests. It doubles easily.
