unpeeled Granny Smith apple

  • 1 In 8-inch skillet, mix lemon juice, honey, salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat, beating occasionally with wire whisk, until honey is dissolved. Remove from heat; beat in olive oil. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Let cool to room temperature.
  • 2 Cut radicchio through the core into quarters; remove core. Cut radicchio crosswise into thin ribbons and place in large bowl. Remove thick stems from watercress; mix watercress with radicchio.

Toss with enough dressing to moisten salad.

Expert Tips

"This is one of my favorite boiled dressings. While you're at it, triple the dressing so you'll have some for the fridge. It will keep for several days."
