Whether or not you actually take photos of your food, doing so might actually (like, scientifically) improve how it tastes. Luckily, many dishes that are visually pleasing are also healthy—think: blue majik, algae, and smoothie bowls, which have all seen their heyday on Instagram. So in the coming months, expect to see a new and totally photogenic superfood take over your plates and social feeds: Radicchio del Veneto.

According to Eater, Radicchio del Veneto, also sometimes known as La Rosa del Veneto, is a chicory grown mostly in parts of Italy, but also in California, Pennsylvania, and other locales trendy enough to grow a millennial pink lettuce. Yes, a millennial pink lettuce. Though the sweet and bitter pink radicchio, isn’t a new vegetable, it’s becoming much more popular—and the festively colored reason why is quite obvious.

To get a serving of the stuff, you can visit a Whole Foods or keep an eye on changing menus, as restaurants increasingly integrate the beautiful salad ingredient into their menus.

Get a visual introductory course on Radicchio del Veneto below.
