Directions

Preparation:25min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Using a vegetable peeler or sharp knife, cut white radish into very thin curls. Place in a colander, sprinkle with salt and leave to drain for 15 minutes. Rinse and pat dry with paper towel.
  2. Peel away thin strips the length of the cucumber to create a striped effect. Slice cucumber very thinly; arrange on individual plates or a serving platter. Place red and white radishes on top of cucumber slices.
  3. To make vinaigrette, whisk vinegar, lemon juice, oil and salt and pepper to taste in a bowl. Drizzle over radishes. Top with chives and mung bean sprouts.

I haven't eaten radishes for years. Such a simple dish with bold flavours. Am adding this to my salad repertoire. Thanks for sharing. - 22 Apr 2011
