Recipe Details


While its crunchy purple leaves might look like cabbage, radicchio is actually a type of chicory that originated in Italy. It adds a pop of color and bold bite to our hearty salad of kale, white beans, and roasted sweet potatoes. Toss with a citrusy honey-chive dressing, then add an irresistibly creamy thyme-infused goat cheese.

Cooking Steps

  1. Prepare ingredients

    Prepare ingredients

    Preheat oven to 450ºF. Rinse all produce. Halve sweet potato lengthwise, then cut crosswise into ½-inch half-moons. Drain and rinse white beans and pat dry with paper towel. Strip thyme leaves, discarding stems.

  2. Roast sweet potatoes and beans

    Roast sweet potatoes and beans

    On a baking sheet, toss sweet potatoes and white beans with half of thyme, 2 tablespoons olive oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and pepper as desired. Arrange in a single layer and roast, mixing halfway through, until sweet potatoes and white beans are tender and slightly charred, 16-18 minutes total.

  3. Prepare remaining ingredients

    Prepare remaining ingredients

    While sweet potatoes and white beans roast, quarter radicchio lengthwise and rinse thoroughly, then thinly slice leaves crosswise, discarding tough stem. Halve tomatoes. Thinly slice chives. Roughly chop almonds, or leave in bag and gently crush with the bottom of a heavy pan. Halve lemon.

  4. Massage kale

    Massage kale

    Tear kale leaves into bite-size pieces, discarding long stems. Sprinkle ¼ teaspoon salt over kale leaves and, using your hands, massage until beginning to soften and darken, 1-2 minutes.

  5. Make dressing and goat cheese

    Make dressing and goat cheese

    In a large bowl (big enough for the salad), whisk together honey, chives, juice of 1 lemon, 3 tablespoons olive oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and pepper as desired. Add roasted sweet potatoes and white beans, radicchio, tomatoes, and kale to bowl with dressing and toss to coat. In a small bowl, whisk together goat cheese, remaining thyme, and 1 tablespoon warm water until smooth and fluffy, 1-2 minutes. Season with ⅛ teaspoon salt and pepper.

  6. Plate salad
