Grilled Radicchio and Kielbasa

Posted on

I’ve joked over time about grilling lettuce – I know people do it, but I have never tried it. Partly because I don’t know how. And partly because it just sounds odd.

But in my quest for all things kielbasa, I was reading the New York Times Dining section and came across a Melissa Clark recipe (and you know I love her recipes) for, of all things, Grilled Sausages and Radicchio.

Finally – here was someone I trust telling me how to grill lettuce…and adding sausage to it.  What could be better?

Grilled Radicchio and KielbasaIt even looked pretty – though not as lovely as Melissa Clark’s, but for the first time making it, I’d say it looked appetizing.

Instead of the sausage, I substituted my current – and continuing – obsession: the far lower fat Hillshire Farm Turkey Polska Kielbasa, but made the recipe as Ms. Clark described.  And it was both easy and delicious.

When I make it again, I’ll use less radicchio, but this is a healthy, quick, delicious recipe worth trying. And if your kid (or guests) don’t go for the grilled radicchio, they can always pop that Turkey Polska Kielbasa on a plate or bun and enjoy it in the more traditional manner!
