Treviso & Black Garlic Rabbit Salad

Makes 6 Servings
wine WINE PAIRING
Ribolla Gialla from Friuli

Treviso is a deep red Italian bitter green that is often grilled, roasted, or braised as cooking reduces its bitter flavor. However, it can also be used in dishes showcasing that very bitterness, like this salad. Here the bitterness of the treviso takes center stage, enhanced by an astringent black garlic vinaigrette and tempered by moist rabbit meat.

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

1

Remove any excess fat or silver skin from the surface of the rabbit saddles. Season them with salt.
2

Heat 1/4 cup of the olive oil over medium heat in a saucepan with the rosemary, garlic cloves, and chili flakes.

Once the pan is aromatic, add the rabbit saddles.

4

Cook the rabbit saddles through, but take care not to dry them out (rabbit cooks similarly to chicken, remove it from the heat at 155 degrees and let it carry over cook to 160).

Remove the rabbit from the pan and reserve. Add the chicken stock and white wine to the pan.

10

Wash and rough chop the treviso. Pull the chervil, marjoram, and parsley leaves off their stalks. Rough chop the marjoram, leaving the other herb leaves whole. Toss the two together in a large bowl with a pinch of salt.
11

Slice the rested, room temperature rabbit saddles into medallions. Add the rabbit and resting juices, followed by about 2 ½ tbsp of the vinaigrette (you can add more later after tasting) to the salad. Toss the salad by hand, ensuring that all the treviso is well dressed.
