Radish, Fennel & Endive Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette

November 18, 2008

I’ll bring a salad.” And this is what she brought: a crunchy treat that comes from the distinctly fresh flavors of its two main ingredients, both unrivaled by most other root vegetables.

Serves 6

3 Tbls. Dijon mustard
2 Tbls. red vinegar
1- 2 tsp Kosher or sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
6 Tbls. olive oil
24 radishes, trimmed and very thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
4 fennel bulbs, trimmed and very thinly sliced crosswise (about 4 cups)
1 Belgian endive, thinly sliced crosswise
2 Tbls. fresh Italian parsley, minced

In a blender or food processor, combine mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper. With motor running, add oil by tablespoon-fulls until it is well blended.

In a salad bowl, toss together radishes, fennel, endive, parsley, and vinaigrette. Enjoy!
