My family always had a vegie patch. I hope you like my salad - it's special. Read more

About a million years ago, when I was in primary school, my teacher helped us start a special garden project.

I decided to grow radish and it was going splendidly until one terrible day; the kids decided to play “Simon says” and one of them suggested “raid Jim's radish patch”. My beautiful plants were destroyed and I was devastated at the loss.

I reckon I've gotten over it, but my family aren't so sure - ever since that day I have grown fresh radish every year in my home garden.

To use up the large amounts of radish I grow, I have developed this simple salad. It has a crisp, clean taste with a nice sharp bite from the radish which I believe cleanses the pallet and warms the soul. Toss through some of my family's special “secret dressing” and this dish is truly divine. Enjoy!
