As frosts begin blanketing the fields, there’s something amazing happening underground. Root vegetables are storing nutrients, preparing for winter and eventually for growth in spring. They’re converting their energy into flavor and, just about now, they’re perfect. In this recipe, we’re taking root vegetables, roasting them to perfection and serving them in an incredibly tasty, hearty salad with lightly bitter radicchio, toasted hazelnuts, winter citrus and silky ricotta salata cheese.

Cut off and discard the root ends of the radicchio lettuce; roughly chop the leaves. Medium dice the turnip. Roughly chop the hazelnuts. Peel and mince the shallot to get 2 tablespoons of minced shallot (you may have extra); place the minced shallot in a bowl with the vinegar.
