Treviso radicchio is a milder variety of radicchio. It has long, dainty magenta leaves; white veins; and a delicately crinkled texture. When roasted or grilled, its slightly bitter, nutty flavor mellows considerably. If you can’t find it, regular radicchio works well. The sweetness of the oranges balances out the pleasant bitterness of the radicchio.
