I had to use the rest of the radish I bought and thought I would make a bright salad for this very sunny day. Balsamic vinegar enhances the flavour of strawberry and when combined with radish shoots and sliced radish the strawberry reduces the heat of the salad nicely. The dressing tastes a little of ketchup – but more decadent than the standard tomato variety! I hope you enjoy it! If you have problems with resistant starches you may want to use the rice whilst it is still warm.


A large handful of pecan nuts

8 radishes sliced thinly

A large handful of radish sprouts

A handful of green leaves (rocket, kale, lettuce or chard – it really doesn’t matter)

3 strawberries sliced thinly

100g of cooked wholegrain rice


1 tablespoon of hazelnut oil

2 teaspoons of balsamic vinegar

3 strawberries (mashed)



Combine all the salad ingredients together

Mix the dressing ingredients and drizzle the dressing over the salad

Season then serve


Serves 2
