Watermelon Radish

I don’t usually post my salads, but this one has a unique and photogenic ingredient:  watermelon radish.

Never heard of it before, but hey, life means taking adventures.

Almost watermelon in appearance, not in taste

So here it is, sitting on a bed of radish leaves (from itself) and mustard greens.  Simple.

I made a very small salad dressing of balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar and extra virgin olive oil, not depicted.  Ratio about 1:1:1.  You could add in some cracked black pepper.

It is milder than your general radish, but definitely has that recognizable radish taste.  (Much more so than daikon.)  Slice very thin, a quarter inch or less if you can.

Obviously, any of your other favorite salad veggies are welcome here, too.  I was running late for work this morning.

About goatsandgreens

The foodie me: Low/no gluten, low sugars, lots of ethnic variety of foods. Seafood, offal, veggies. Farmers' markets. Cooking from scratch, and largely local. The "future" me: I've now moved to my new home in rural western Massachusetts. I am raising chickens (for meat and for eggs) and planning for guinea fowl, Shetland sheep, and probably goats and/or alpaca. Possibly feeder pigs. Raising veggies and going solar.
