In my post yesterday, I reviewed Vegetable Harvest by Patricia Wells. This lovely winter salad was the first recipe I tried from the book. I had just been to the farmers' market and bought an enormous bunch of radishes for 50 cents, so this recipe seemed fortuitous. You could serve this either as part of a family meal, or as a first course at a dinner party. It is quite colourful and attractive on the plate-and is really tasty.
The recipe calls for the beets to be steamed, but I absolutely adore the taste of roasted beets, so I did them that way. We tried this with both a soft sheep's milk cheese and a hard cheese, and both were delicious. Vegetable Salad: Carrots, Fennel, Radishes, Beets, and Onions
