autumn 2010



It has taken me a long time to appreciate the taste of radishes. Although I've always loved their colour, shape and size - as a child I always found them too spicy to eat. The taste would linger for the remainder of the meal, overstaying its welcome and making everything, even most upsetting - my dessert(!) taste of this "icky hot radish".

However these days if the radishes are extra tiny and young I quite enjoy them - especially if, as in this salad, they are sliced paper thin and coupled with the sweetness of crisp apples and carrot.

  • Apple, Carrot and Radish Salad
  •  
  • 2 sweet red apples such a Splendor or Pacific rose, sliced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 to 3 tiny radish, thinly sliced
  • a handful of garden fresh salad greens
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • toasted walnuts, chopped
  • sea salt flakes
  1. Layer the sliced apples, carrot, radish and greens on 2 serving plates. Combine the lemon juice, olive oil and cayenne pepper in a shaker and drizzle over the salad.
  2. Sprinkle with toasted walnuts and flaked sea salt.
  3. Serves 2
