Radish and Pomegranate Salad
Gorgeous for accompanying fish, chicken or a vegetarian dishes, this vibrant salad recipe mixes crunchy radish with sweet pomegranate seeds and cooling mint.
This pretty, peppery salad gives sweetness to your table and is excellent alongside fish, chicken or a rich vegetable dish. We slice the vegetables on a mandoline, as the thinner they are, the better they absorb the dressing.
