Fennel Radish Salad

My friend Sue taught me to maFennel Radish Saladke a version of this salad a few years ago in Portland. Its one of my favorite spring salads and is the first thing I think to make when I see fennel at the market.

1 decent sized bulb of Fennel, sliced very thinly, plus fronds for garnish
1 bunch Radishes, sliced very thinly
1 lemon, zested + juiced
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (The best you have. I love Central Texas Olive Ranch.)
Flaky Sea Salt, to taste
fresh ground Black Pepper, to taste

Combine fennel, radishes, and lemon zest in a medium bowl. Whisk together lemon juice, a pinch of salt, pepper and olive oil. Pour over veggies and let rest 30 minutes or more. Adjust salt to taste and garnish with a few fennel fronds.

French Potatoes

Salad:
2 cups Tiny Red Potatoes [scrubbed clean + boiled till just done, about 10 minutes]
3 Radishes [sliced thinly]
2 Purple Spring Onions [sliced into rings, about 1/2 cup]
Tender Spring Lettuce Leaves [red leaf or butter lettuce]

Dressing:
1 Tbs Orange Juice
1 Tbs White Wine Vinegar
1 tsp Maple Syrup
1 tsp Dijon Mustard
1 tsp Whole Grain Mustard [prepared]
3 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 tsp Dried Tarragon
Sea Salt + Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Whisk dressing ingredients in a small bowl until well combined. Allow to sit while you boil the potatoes and chop the onions + radishes. Cool potatoes to room temperature. Combine potatoes, radishes, and onions in a bowl. Toss with dressing + serve on a bed of lettuce leaves.
