  • 6 radishes
  • 1 shallot
  • 3 tablespoons creme fraiche
  • 1 lemon quartered
  • olive oil
  • 4 chives
  • Greens - see above
  • salt & pepper to taste


Wash & Prep Ingredients

  • It's always good to wash all the fresh ingredients. Even if you purchase triple washed greens in those convenient bags at the supermarket, it's still a good idea to give the greens a rinse.
  • Remove the ends of the radishes, then thinly them. Peel the shallot and finely mince it. Depending on its size, you want about 3 tablespoons.
  • Quarter the lemon and remove as many seeds as you can. Slice the chives thinly.

Marinate the Radishes

  • Combine the radishes, creme fraiche and shallots in a bowl. Squeeze the juice from the lemon quarters over the radishes, then drizzle a little olive oil on top.
  • Season with salt and pepper and stir to combine all the ingredients.
  • Let this marinate for at least 15 minutes, but give it a stir occasionally.

Prepare the Salad

  • Into a large salad bowl, combine the greens with the marinated radishes and the chives. Toss well to combine all the ingredients.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  • Serve
