This is a fabulous little fresh spring salad – full of bright crunch from the snap peas, balanced with nice bite from the radish and kicked up a notch by the addition of some nice flaky salt. A fresh, bright side for something decadent – like the lamb chops I served it with.
Fresh Snap Pea and Radish Salad with Sprouts
Snap peas (about 4 cups ?)
4 large radishes – I used plain old regular red radishes
1/4 cup sprouts – I used broccoli sprouts, though I bet the hot variety would be nice as well
3 Tbsp. almond oil
1 Tbsp. dijon mustard
1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
2 big pinches flaky grey salt
Black pepper (a dusting)
De-tip your snap peas and cut into rough fork-sized chunks.
Slice the radishes thin, stack the rounds up, and cut into match sticks.
Add both to a medium bowl with the sprouts.
Whisk together the oil, mustard and vinegar in a small bowl. Add the salt and taste – add some more if the tastes don’t pop.
Pour the dressing over the salad and work in, using your hands to toss and separate the sprout threads.
Dust with black pepper and serve.
Serves 2 for dinner + 1 for lunch as a side dish.
