Roasted Radicchio with Gorgonzola and Balsamic Vinegar

Roasting brings out a concentrated, natural sweetness in radicchio. This dish is unusual, elegant, simple—and delicious. Served on a bed of risotto, it makes an attractive meal. If you’re not a Gorgonzola fan, this is equally delicious with Brie, Swiss, aged Cheddar, or smoked Gouda. You can substitute lemon juice for the balsamic vinegar.

Roasted Tomatillo and Green Tomato Salsa

Raw tomatillos can be chopped and added to a salad, or sprinkled on top of soup for a fresh flavor, but making them into salsas is undoubtedly their best-known use. One of our sons, always the cook who gilds the lily, came up with this version of Mexican salsa verde, and it quickly became a family favorite. The roasted vegetables take on a smoky flavor which adds a nice dimension to the spiciness. Enjoy!

Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

A slightly different take on salsa verde, the traditional Mexican “green salsa.” This recipe uses both tomatillos and green tomatoes, making a great way to use any firm little green tomatoes that may have accidentally been knocked off your plants. This is a very adaptable recipe — how hot or garlicky you make it is up to you. Roasted salsa is a wonderful accompaniment to a meal that already features other baked dishes, such as a baked summer squash casserole.
