  • 1 tablespoon shallot minced
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard I used country style dijon
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
  • 1/4 cup olive oil


  • 1 small head radicchio cored and chopped
  • 6 to 8 cups rye bread homemade or store-bought, cubed
  • 1 pound brussels sprouts trimmed and halved
  • 1 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 8 ounces corned beef leftovers and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon parsley minced
  • 1 tablespoon chives snipped



  • In a glass jar or container with a tight fitting lid, measure and add: the minced shallot, dijon mustard (I used country style dijon), honey, kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, red wine vinegar, prepared horseradish and olive oil.
  • Secure the lid and shake well and make sure the honey is dissolved.


  • Fill a large bowl with ice cubes and water. Plunge the diced radicchio in the ice water and pop the whole bowl it into your fridge for a few hours. Periodically, swish the radicchio during that time.
  • Once done soaking, drain and spin out any excess water by using a salad spinner.
  • Toss about 8 cups of cubed rye bread onto a rimmed metal baking sheet that’s been sprayed with olive oil. Spray the tops of the rye with move olive oil and bake on the middle rack of your preheated 400° oven for about 8 to 10 minutes or until toasted and golden in spots.
  • Remove and add to a large mixing bowl.
  • Meanwhile, add the (trimmed and halved) Brussels sprouts with the chopped yellow onion to a rimmed metal baking sheet that’s also been spray with olive oil. Spray the tops of the onions and Brussels sprouts with olive oil and roast for 20 minutes or until crispy and golden in spots.
  • To the bowl with the toasted rye, add the diced corned beef, crispy roasted Brussels sprouts and onions. Add a desired amount of soaked and spun-dry radicchio and toss to combine.
  • Drizzle with a desired amount of dressing. I use it all but that depends on how you like your panzanella.
  • Toss well to combine. Taste and season wth salt and pepper, if desired.
  • Lastly, sprinkle with snipped fresh chives and minced parsley for a pop of deep leafy green and herbaceous flavor.
