Radicchio has a bitter and spicy taste that mellows if it is grilled, roasted, or paired with something sweet and salty.

3/4 cup golden raisins
3/4 cup cleaned and sliced strawberries
4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 pounds radicchio, cut in 1-inch shreds
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 pound fresh goat cheese
1. Put the raisins, strawberries, and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl. Let them soak for 15 minutes.
2. Place the shredded radicchio in a large bowl, and pour the raisin-strawberry mixture on top.

4. Crumble goat cheese in chunks over the salad. Gently toss again to distribute the cheese, while also keeping it in chunks.
