SUMMER HERB & RADISH SALAD (by France)

SUMMER HERB & RADISH SALAD (by France)

Cooking for me is a chance to play with colors in addition to playing with flavors. This super easy Summer herb & radish salad is as delicious as it is bright and colorful. Sprinkled with some juicy pomegranate and pumpkin seeds - it's a refreshing way to start a meal. Bon appetit!


Serves 2  l  Difficulty: very easy  l  Prep time: 15 min  l  Total time: 15 min


INGREDIENTS

4 radishes 

1 basil bunch 

1 parsley bunch 

2 mint strands 

3 oregano strands 

2 tablespoons pomegranate 

2 tablespoons avocado/olive oil

1 tablespoons pumpkin seeds

Salt & pepper

STEPS

1. Using a mandoline (I used this one), slice the radishes into thin slices. Watch your fingers while doing it! 

2. Using a washed pair of scissors, cut basil leaves into thin strips and pull out parsley leaves from their strands - pile the herbs into the center of each plate as your 'salad' base.

3. Sprinkle herb salad with sliced radishes, pumpkin seeds, pomegranate and the mint. 

4 .Season your salad with avocado oil, salt and pepper.
