Strawberry and Radish Garden Salad

Radishes and strawberries are both easy to grow so why not try growing your own this year? Then you can combine your garden produce with a dressing to make a delicious radish and strawberry salad. This recipe can also be made with purchased produce, but remember organic is best because it has more flavor. Failing that, just ensure everything is ripe and unblemished.

The sweetness of the strawberries contrasts beautifully with the piquant radish flavor, and the balsamic and extra-virgin olive oil dressing bridges the flavor, offering both savory and sweet hints. This is such a basic salad with a very short ingredients list but less is often more when it comes to making the best salad recipes, so don’t worry about this salad. It is sure to come out beautifully.

Serve this as an appetizer or a side dish, or even make it for lunch, perhaps adding chopped cooked chicken breast and walnut halves to make it more filling. This salad needs to be served straight away. If you are making it for later, cover it with plastic wrap and keep the dressing separate until serving. Since oil and vinegar do not mix, you will need to re-stir the dressing to combine the ingredients in it because they separate after a short while.
