I used the DeLallo breadsticks you can find them at most grocery stores for a couple of dollars. I also used shaved parmesan for the dressing and mixed it up with a stick blender, if you are using a whisk I would probably use grated parmesan.

 

  1. Make the Dressing by blending everything together and adjusting to taste, if it’s too tart add a little more sugar, you might find that you don’t need as much Salt as the Parmesan is salty enough.
  2. Shred the Radicchio and place in a bowl of cold water, this will remove the bitterness.
  3. Pickle the Onion using this recipe.
  4. Cut the Lettuces into bite size pieces and add to a large bowl.
  5. Open the Beans drain and rinse them with cold water, add to the bowl.
  6. Drain the Red Peppers and add them to the bowl.
  7. Drain the quartered Artichoke Hearts add them to the bowl.
  8. Drain the Radicchio and the Pickled Red Onions and add them to the bowl.
  9. Mix together with the Dressing.
  10. Throw the Pine nuts on top and serve with the Breadsticks.
