Torn Bread Radicchio Salad w/Roasted Broccoli + Rotisserie Chicken


half a loaf of rustic bread

4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided plus more to taste

salt and pepper, to taste

12 ounces broccoli, florets and stems trimmed thinly

1/2 cup walnuts

1 small head radicchio, chopped into bite sized chunks

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

juice from one lemon

2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan

red chili flakes (optional, to taste)

1 prepared rotisserie chicken

Preheat the oven to 350°F degrees. Coarsely tear the bread into large chunks and place on a baking sheet. Brush with 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place in the oven to bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the outer edges are toasted.

While the bread is toasting, toss the broccoli in 2 tablespoons olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Place the broccoli on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake in the same oven as the bread until charred in spots, about 20-25 minutes.

Lastly, toast the walnuts for just 5-7 minutes until fragrant. Remove all roasted ingredients from the oven and turn off.

In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and lemon juice. Just before serving, combine the toasted bread and radicchio in a large bowl with the warm broccoli, nuts and rotisserie chicken. Drizzle with olive oil, parmesan, red pepper flakes. Enjoy!
