Radish and apple salad with limenaigrette

Yesterday, we spent some time putting to practice some of the cooking advice from the Native Tongue Magazine. We particularly enjoyed the tips on how to prepare a perfectly balanced salad. In their last edition, they explain in detail how to combine the elements in both the dressing and the salad to better harmonize the different flavors.

From that inspiration, we prepared a delicious salad with radishes, golden apples and Savoy cabbage — also taking advantage of the radish season. For the dressing, we created a tasty limenaigrette that can even be used as a marinade for chicken. We’ll leave you with the recipe up next.
