Crunchy Radicchio Salad

This simple salad makes a great lunch. Quick, easy and most of all delicious

This salad can be made using cupboard ingredients and swapped out with whatever you have to hand. croutons can be swapped for some toasted nan bread. Apples can be changed out for for pears or even grapefruit segments for a citrus kick. Today, I used a soft herb cheese but this also works well with a goat cheese, or other soft cheese like boursin. For the nutting crunch, walnuts can be used instead of pecans or even some pumpkin seeds.
