Radish Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette (with Video!)

I was inspired to make this recipe when I discovered some gorgeous radishes at my local farmers market. This simple salad is perfect for a quick summer lunch.

2 bunches of radishes (see note)
cup of sliced Spring onions
3-4 hard-boiled eggs
Lemon
Parsley
1 teaspoon of mustard
Salt and pepper
Olive Oil

Note: The proper storage of radishes can really make a difference. Radishes will keep for a while, but you need to wash them, trim off their tops, and then store them in water in the refrigerator.

1. Begin by prepping the dressing. Squeeze the lemon juice into a large measuring cup or bowl. Add the spring onions and mustard. Whisk in olive oil and add salt and pepper to taste.
2. Slice the radishes into rounds (about 1 cups of sliced radishes to serve 4)
3. Cut the hard boiled eggs into quarters
4. Place the parsley on a serving platter as the base of the salad. Compose the radishes and hard-boiled eggs on top of the parsley. Drizzle the dressing over the salad.
5. Serve with some fresh butter and bread for a fabulous farm-style lunch.

Love Farmer's Markets and most certainly lovely zesty radishes! Also wonderful thinly sliced sliced in a whole grain sandwich as well (so is cucumber).

Interesting. I think I like the radish Tea Sandwich idea better though.
