Herbilicious Nutty Salad with Feta and Radish


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!
