Herbilicious Nutty Salad with Feta and Radish

10.1.15


You may be looking at this salad thinking well that's a bit boring, but I urge you to look again...see that crumbled feta, the baby herb leaves, the crumbled walnuts, the drizzle of simple dressing, the thin slices of radish - now imagine a mouthful with everything - the salty soft feta, the bitter leaves, the zingy herbs, the heat of the radish, crumbly nutty walnuts and the tart dressing - see?! See what I mean! It's actually bloody delicious - so fresh and deceptively complex! Well, anyway, I love it :) and it is perfect with simply cooked fish or chicken for a healthy, tasty lunch. Hurrah!



2 cups mixed salad greens
1 cup baby herbs /  microgreens eg mint, basil, coriander, dill
1/4 cup walnuts, lightly toasted, chopped quite small
2 radishes, finely sliced - ideally with a mandolin
80g-100g soft feta, crumbled
1/4 cup edible flowers (optional)
3 tbs white balsamic
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp caster sugar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Layer salad ingredients onto a serving plate. Whisk dressing ingredients together and drizzle over salad. Serve immediately! Perfect with simply cooked fish or chicken. Serves 4 as a side

    1. Hi Marcelle - and thank you so much for lovely comment! I'm no expert when it come to cameras, but feel pretty confident in recommending either Nikon or Canon - I started with a Nikon D600 then upgraded to a D800, and I mostly use a 50mm 1.4G lens as the 50mm is closest to what your eye sees...hope that helps! :)
