Orange and Radish Salad

It is summer again and I have started growing vegetables in my garden. For the first time I grew icicle radish (mooli/diakon). I had never realised how easy it is to grow diakon radish. You plant them in the spring (sprinkle seeds on the soil) and in 21 days you have fresh radish. A recipe for the greens will be posted soon.

I wanted a salad which is fresh and light as I was cooking a lot of spicy food and this worked out well. I adapted this recipe from the NYtimes. This is a quick and easy recipe.


3 oranges, peeled and sliced into rounds

3 small tender icicle radish (the original recipe uses a bunch of red radish), cut into matchsticks or grated

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp sugar

Sea salt

orange zest (optional)

2-3 mint and lemon basil leaves, chiffonade


Combine lemon juice, sugar jest and whisk till sugar dissolves. Chill dressing

Arrange orange rounds in a serving dish. Sprinkle radish on top.

Sprinkle zest and salt

Pour dressing, garnish with the herbs and serve.
