With all the root vegetables in full flow at the market today, I fancied a raw crispy salad to taste them. Admittedly, mine are cut, razor thin, on a mandolin but you could grate/microplane/machine chop the vegetables or even use a potato peeler to make ribbons. I rather like the mix here, but make it your own with things you like. I also provide two sauce to choose from.
red cabbage (a wedge - about 1/8th)
1 small black radish (daikon)
1 fennel bulb
2 celery stalks
Just slice thinly and/or grate. Mix well and then dress with either the following:
Herbed Greek yoghurt dressing
240 ml /1 cup Greek yoghurt
2 tablespoons of dried dill (3 if you can fin fresh)
1 tablespoon of chopped chives (dried if you can not get fresh)
1/2 lemon (the juice of... more if a lemon lover!)
1 chopped shallot (1/2 red onion)
season - black pepper and salt
Mix and let stand an hour (minimum).
125 ml / 1/2 cup olive oil
1 Lime (juice and some of the zest)
1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
(small bunch of fresh coriander/cilantro if wanted)
season - white pepper and salt
Mix the mustard and lime juice. Whisk in the oil slowly, add the herbs, season and serve.
