Christmas is a time for parties, meetings and get togethers, with friends here, family there, work colleagues tra-la-la... it is usually also a time that we tend to over indulge a bit, which is fun sometimes too ;) But yes, we must try and compensate where we can. So for the celebrations I suggest that you remember some good #salading, like this refreshing Christmas salad that I propose today. It is super simple and very decorative. It can be prepared in a jiffy and I guarantee it will fill your table with colour and freshness. Mixed greens, radishes and pomegranate - an ideal way to beat the caloric excesses and maintain our healthy habits during Christmas consumption. Surely with such a delicious entrée (appetizer), everyone who sits at our table will love this salad.
With this recipe I want to wish you health and all the happiness in the world, not only for the holidays but also after Christmas ;)
- Deseed the pomegranate. A trick that I like to use is to hit the pomegranate with a wooden spoon before cutting. This will make it much easier to get the seeds out.
- Wash the radishes well. Although it is not necessary to peel them, you can use a peeler to slice them very thinly as if they were pappardelle. We'll leave them in water until ready to plate.
- Just before serving, drain the water from radishes and place them in the centre of the plate. Surround them with the mixed greens and top with the pomegranate seeds and a few rocket sprouts for garnish.
- Dress with EVOO, salt and a little freshly ground Sichuan pepper.
