Salad With Radish and Green Onions
From: Inge

Small red mild radish are a favorite salad ingredient with many Germans. One of the many salad variations we usually eat. We prefer the mild nutty flavor of a medium-priced walnut oil to the fruity flavor of olive oil, the grainy texture of the country-style mustard and some tang from the vinegar, but feel free to use what you like best. I often sub the onions with 1 tablespoon chives.

SERVES 4 -6

For Salad

  • 10-12 cups salad greens, torn into bite-sized pieces (we like romaine)
  • 3/4 cup red radish, cut into 1/16 inch slices
  • 1/4 cup green onion, cut into 1/8 inch slices

For Dressing

  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons apple juice (100% juice)
  • 1 teaspoon country-style dijon mustard
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 3 tablespoons walnut oil
  • 1 pinch sugar (optional)

Put salad greens in a large bowl. Arrange radish and onions on top.

For the dressing mix all ingredients except oil in a small bowl until blended.Stirring constantly with a fork or small whisker add oil gradually until emulsified. Taste. If too sour add a little sugar.

Pour dressing over salad and toss well.

Note: Country-style mustard gets hotter when you prepare the dressing in advance. If you do so, you should consider reducing the amount of mustard used.
