This was a very elegant salad as the title suggests. The dressing was absolutely tasty----one that I would "borrow" to dress up a boring, bland salad. In general, the salad had a completely different, zesty taste compared to the rather tame garden-variety salads that I usually make at home. What would have given it 5 stars? Well, since I do cook for a family, I have to take their preferences into account. For this salad, the radicchio was a bit too strong for my 2 kids' taste buds (both under 10). So if I made this again--and I certainly think I will--I would probably cut the radicchio in half and instead replace it with a bit of red-leaf lettuce (to retain the color contrast of the greens used--which was one of the elements that made this salad so elegant). And I would defnitely double the amount of the dressing. It's really tasty.
