1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons hazelnuts
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
Freshly ground pepper

2. In a medium bowl, whisk the lemon juice with the 1/4 cup of olive oil, the cheese and the 2 tablespoons of finely ground hazelnuts. Season the dressing with salt and pepper.
3. Light a grill. Brush the radicchio halves with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over moderately high heat, turning, until the edges are lightly charred, 4 minutes. Transfer to a platter and let cool slightly. Spoon the dressing on top, sprinkle with the chopped hazelnuts and serve.
