Garden Fresh Salad with Vinaigrette Dressing

Harvest some lettuce, radishes, and dill from your garden, and maybe cherry tomatoes and carrots, too, and put together a light salad, that is easy to make for a picnic or potluck.

 

Russian Borsch

Aside from juicing, one of my favorite ways to use fresh beets is this classic Russian Borsch recipe (modified to be raw of course) from Quantum Eating.

Zesty Radish Greens

Russians dig radishes—literally and figuratively. Back home in Russia we’d long for early spring and the appearance of fresh radishes in the markets. We always discarded the greens. Then, for most of the  years we’ve lived in America, we’ve always used radishes in our salads, and thrown away the leaves. But just weeks ago at the market, my husband Nick heard another customer say he use radish leaves in his salad. Hmmm…we decided to experiment that very day. Result…the best salad!

Now I’m all excited about eating radish greens.Radish greens are edible, tasty, and nutritious! But the flavor can be strong, so use them VERY sparingly at first. You may substitute them for arugula or mustard greens in recipes. Learn more about the benefits of radish greens here.
