Fresh herbs are a fantastic addition to salads. For milder-tasting herbs like dill, use a generous amount and chop into large, feathery pieces. Then mix into your greens for a refreshing, herbaceous burst of flavor. Serve this salad from a pretty bowl or, for a more dramatic effect, double the recipe and place on a large platter as a bed for a whole fillet of roasted salmon. Drizzle with a lemony dressing and garnish with a swirl of tzatizki. Serve with pita bread or basmati rice.
Fresh Dill & Thin Radish Salad
1 medium shallot, peeled and sliced
3 tablespoons olive oil
Dash of salt
2 romaine hearts, chopped
½ ounce fresh dill (about ½ loosely-packed cup)
8 radishes, thinly sliced
First, make the crispy shallots. Warm olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots along with a dash of salt. Saute, stirring often, until brown and crispy. Transfer to paper towel-lined plate to cool.
Toss the romaine and dill in a bowl or on a platter. Arrange radish slices on top. Garnish with the cooled shallots.
Serve with your choice of dressing.
