Cherries, Radicchio, and a good red wine
January 7, 2013
I usually make the grains in advance - go skiing - leave the quick chop and dice for the last minute. I rewarmed the quinoa with the cherries, to soften them, and served the salad with a Deaver Vineyards Barbera. The sweet cherry and the slight bitterness of the radicchio blend very well with a heavy red. Even the fans of lighter wines thought this was heaven. This salad was all about the high note of the cherries and I may add more of them next time.
