Radish garden salad with a cranberry spin

A lovely light starter with fantastic sweet&salty flavours. Easy to toss together, and is everything salad should be – fresh and crunchy.  Tried, loved and adopted from my mom’s kitchen.

Preparation time: under 10 minutes / Serves 2 / Veg-friendly

We would need:

  • 2 handfuls of mixed greens (crisp romaine, baby spinach, rocket works well)
  • 1 small cucumber, peeled lengthways into ribbons
  • 4 radishes, ends trimmed, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp. of freshly chopped chives
  • 1 tbsp. of freshly chopped dill
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • a pinch of roasted sesame seeds (optional)

For the dressing:

  • 1 tbsp. of cranberry jam
  • 1 tbsp. of light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. of water


  1. Place greens in a large serving bowl along with cucumber, radishes and herbs. Season with a tiny bit of salt & pepper. Toss together.  Add some sesame seeds if using.
  2. Whisk the dressing ingredients in a small jug until well combined.
  3. Drizzle the dressing over salad just before serving. Bon app!

With love,
