May Dinner

Spinach and Radish Salad
From Kirke Elsass

What you need:
Spinach
Daikon Radish
Beauty Heart Radish
Green Onions
Honey Mustard Dressing

What you do:
Cut stems off of spinach, coarsely grate the radishes, and thinly chop the green onions. Mix in proportions you see fit.

For the dressing, combine a little honey with some coarse mustard and a touch of water.

In the fall, try using other hardy salad greens like mustard or immature broccoli raab. In that season, substitute leeks for green onions.

Plug for my former employer: If you frequent Slows To Go and have some mustard BBQ sauce sitting in your fridge, try using that.
