Lettuce Radish Salad with Lemon Dressing

This Lettuce Radish Salad with Lemon Dressing is my own creation. I like contrasting, vibrant colors in salad and this salad is just it. The combination of greens and the radish bringing out the red in it is just what I wanted. This became a favorite for my family and our guests. In Ukrainian culture, you usually see salads dressed into mayo or mixture of oil and vinegar, so when they hear lemon, the salad is gone 🙂 .It gives the ‘tang’ to it. I’m using home grown radishes in this salad, which are quite smaller than you’d see at store. Just make sure you don’t use 20 store bought radishes because that would be way too much tang in it and it would become more like ‘radish radish salad’…

Lettuce Radish Salad Ingredients:

  • 1 batch romaine lettuce (about 13 leaves)
  • 1 English cucumber
  • 20-22 small radishes or a batch of bigger store bought (usually there’s about 10)
  • 1 pack chives (0.66 oz)

Lemon Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon zest
  • 1 lemon squeezed juice (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1. Wash and paper towel pat dry all vegetables. Start by slicing 13 romaine lettuce leaves into half, by cutting out the crunchy stem (usually you would leave it for that extra crunch, but not for this salad). Chop into 1/4” strips.

2. Using Benriner Mandolin, slice 1 English cucumber into thin circles. Add into bowl with lettuce. Slice all 20-22 radishes onto Benriner Mandolin. (NOTE: make sure you wear kitchen glove as these are small and very easy to cut yourself – go slow). Add sliced radishes to the salad.

3. Lastly chop 1 pack chives into 1/2” thick and add into bowl with salad. Mix all veggies.

Make Your Salad Dressing:

4. In a small bowl combine: 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, zest of 1 lemon, squeezed juice out of 1 lemon, 1/2 tsp fine salt and 1/2 tsp ground black pepper. Mix fully, pour over salad and stir altogether. Serve right away. Enjoy!!!
