Radish, Apple and Spinach

Slices of crunch
I can never resist cherry radishes, cute as buttons like pretty maids in a row on the grocery shelf.  Earthy and crisp, a tell-tale sign that spring is coming soon! 

A drop of honey and few squeezes of lemon, with slices of fuchsia and red in a bed of green will surely bring a smile to you. Even if you're in London, cruising awfully near a 0°C this week. So Peggy cheer up, these are for you :)

Ingredients
  • A handful of cherry radishes, thinly sliced
  • A bunch of baby spinach, rinsed
  • 1 red apple, thinly sliced
  • ½ a lemon
  • 1 tbs honey
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Adapted from Seven Spoons

Directions
  1. Toss spinach, radish and apple slices in a bowl
  2. Squeeze lemon juice over the mix
  3. Drizzle honey and olive oil 
  4. Toss again to ensure everything is well coated
  5. Add sea salt and black pepper to taste
