Mixed Herb Salad with Pickled Radish Vinaigrette

  • ACTIVE: 30 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 8 to 10

Jonathon Sawyer pays homage to what he calls “beautiful greens” in this dish, which he typically makes with edible flowers but can be made with any mix of greens and herbs you like. What makes this salad delicious are the radishes, which pickle in the dressing for a couple of hours before serving.

  1. 1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  2. 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  3. 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  4. 1 1/2 tablespoons rosé vinegar or white wine vinegar
  5. 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  6. 5 radishes, very finely diced
  7. 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  8. Kosher salt
  9. Freshly ground pepper
  10. 3 ounces brioche, cut into 1-inch cubes (3 lightly packed cups)
  11. 1 head of red leaf lettuce, leaves torn
  12. 1 head of Bibb lettuce, leaves torn
  13. One 6-ounce head of frisée, torn into bite-size pieces
  14. 1/4 cup lightly packed tarragon leaves
  15. 1/4 cup lightly packed flat-leaf parsley leaves
  16. 1/4 cup lightly packed mint leaves
  17. 1/4 cup snipped chives
  18. Crushed pink peppercorns, for garnish (optional)
  1. In a small bowl, whisk the lemon zest and juice with the olive oil, vinegar and coriander. Stir in the radishes and shallots and season with salt and pepper. Let the vinaigrette stand at room temperature for 2 hours.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°. Spread the brioche cubes on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, until golden and crisp. Let cool slightly, then break the cubes into coarse bread crumbs.
  3. In a large bowl, toss all of the lettuces with the tarragon, parsley, mint and chives. Add the radish vinaigrette to the salad and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper and toss again. Transfer the salad to plates. Top with the brioche crumbs, garnish with crushed pink peppercorns and serve.
Make Ahead The radish vinaigrette can be refrigerated overnight.
