Radish & Feta Salad

I'm feeling the inconvenience of living on an island today and wish I owned a boat or was a better swimmer, anything to reach the other side and back again in one piece. Our dog Finn is set to be released from the animal hospital on Cape Cod after a very stressful few days of surgeries, blood transfusions, and sadness. The problem is it's May on Martha's Vineyard so all the vehicle spaces on the ferry are booked. Nick can get over to him after work but isn't promised a ride home. I just hope tonight ends well with a healing pup sleeping in his own bed...

If Superman could fly to his rescue I know he would.


But the good news is that spring things are popping up all over the place - radishes, bleeding hearts, buttercups. I tossed this Radish & Feta Salad together the other night with things we had around and it turned out delicious.


Radish & Feta Salad

1 bunch fresh radishes, washed, trimmed, and sliced thin
Small handful of feta cheese, crumbled
Small handful of pine nuts, toasted
A few mint leaves, sliced thin
Drizzle of olive oil
Squirt of lemon juice
Salt and black pepper



As you can see this is less of a recipe then a list of ingredients that go really well together in a fresh spring salad. Throw in the amounts that appeal to you and hooray! no actual cooking involved.

  3. Simple preparation is often all that is needed to highlight spring's freshness, and this looks perfect!

    Pups are such beloved members of the family, aren't they. I'm so sorry yours had to go through this, and I hope he was able to make it home last night.
