This is the first year when I can proudly say I am a gardener. Everything you see on this plate comes from my backyard veggie garden. Sweet peas and beautiful radish are fully ripened. Carrots are still very small but there are plenty of herbs. There is no real recipe for this salad. It is just whatever you desire to put on a plate, sprinkle it with lemon juice, add oil, and a pinch of salt. My lunch today was very simple and healthy at the same time. Today I did not feel like cooking anything complicated, it was “take it easy” day. I wish you to have an adventurous weekend – spend more time outside, go to a park, bike, garden. The summer is here and the weather is beautiful!
Radish Salad with Greens
- bunch of red radishes, sliced thinly
- 2 small tomato, sliced thinly
- 1/4 cup sweet peas
- green lettuce of your desire
- thyme, mint
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 2 Tbsp. grapeseed oil
- salt and freshly ground pepper
Arrange radish slices, other vegetables, and herbs on a plate.
In a small bowl whisk together the grapeseed oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
Dress the salad just before serving. Have a good lunch!

I love radishes especially when they are sliced super thin. I have a japanese mandolin that does such a nice job on radishes. This salad looks spectacular!

I miss radish, I mean the one from the own garden. I had the ones from the market and they just don't taste the same.
