This unassuming combination of ingredients is a staple in many European households. It is refreshing, bright, slightly spicy and makes a perfect accompaniment to rich or hearty foods.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch radishes, tops and root tips removed Add to list
  • 8 or so basil leaves (or you may use your favorite tender herb, such as dill, tarragon or chervil) Add to list
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced Add to list
  • Juice of 1 lemon Add to list
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil Add to list
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste Add to list

Preparation

Cut the radishes into thin slices crosswise with a mandolin or potato peeler. Place in a bowl.

Stack the basil leaves on top of each other (about 8 leaves at a time), and cut into thin strips. Toss together with the radishes and remaining ingredients. (Make sure to toss the ingredients shortly before serving or the radishes will get too soft.)
