I was almost blown away (literally) while trying to snap these photos!
If you’ve ever tried to photograph food indoors with minimal natural light, you’ll understand why I braved a mini wind storm just to get a shot of this gorgeous radish salad.
It’s still too muddy for the backyard (plus I feel like our neighbours can see me and are starting to wonder), so I set up my makeshift table on the driveway. Dried leaves were blowing all over the place, the white vintage tablecloth kept billowing around and my two-peas-in-a-pod salt shaker set almost broke! It was quite the scene out there.
Anyway, it was worth it. Radishes are the prettiest vegetable around and need very little to look stunning on a plate. Try this simple dish as a light lunch or served alongside roast chicken.
Recipe: Radish salad with feta & pine nuts
- ~20 radishes, very thinly sliced (use a mandoline for even slices)
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup pine nuts
- A small block of feta cheese
- 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
- Salt and black pepper, to taste
In a medium bowl whisk together the oil and vinegar. Add the radishes, green onions and pine nuts; season to taste. Crumble in the feta over top and either serve immediately or chill before serving.
