Greens and Radish Salad

I wanted a pretty salad for dinner, tonight, besides one, we like.  I decided thin sliced radishes would do the trick as well as add a bite to the greens.  In reality, this is your basic salad but I replaced tomato with radish and added celery and carrots.  I was going to add cheese but we had a cheesy dinner.

Greens and Radish Salad

Ingredients:

1 head of romaine lettuce
5 radishes sliced very thin (used mandolin)
1 carrot, sliced very thin
1 stalk celery, sliced very thin

Dressing: (adapted from Meatless Meals for Meat Eaters) Go see Miriam for her other recipes here.

1/8 cup grapeseed oil (use any one of choosing)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 1/2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon orange juice
1 teaspoon minced onion
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon salt

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until, there is a smooth dressing.  Pour over salad and mix gently.

  1. I am so sad I gave the baby our last radish - this would have been perfect tonight.
