A growing body of evidence shows cherries may help reduce risk factors of age related conditions such as inflammation and heart disease. According to registered dietitian Cheryl Forberg, author of ‘Positively Ageless’ (Rodale 2008) and nutritionist for NBC’s “The Biggest Loser,” the antioxidant compounds that make up cherries’ rich red color are the key to their naturally protective benefits.
• ½ cup dried cherries
• ½ cup dry red wine
• 1 head radicchio (12 ounces), cored and finely chopped
• 3 green onions, chopped, with some green tops
• 2 cups cooked wild rice
• ¾ cup chopped parsley
• 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
• 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
• ¼ cup olive oil
• ½ teaspoon salt
• ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
• 2 tablespoons slivered almonds, lightly toasted
• Parmesan cheese (optional)
In a small bowl, cover the cherries with the wine and let soak for about 2 hours or overnight. Drain, discarding the wine or reserving for another use.
In a larger bowl, toss the radicchio, onions, rice, parsley and drained cherries.
In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mustard, oil, salt and black pepper. Pour over the radicchio mixture and toss gently. Serve at room temperature, sprinkled with almonds.
Add shavings of Parmesan, if desired.
