Radish & Radicchio Salad

This is a simple salad that makes a great no-fuss side dish on a warm evening. We paired it with Chicken Piccata and sauteed spinach.

Radish & Radicchio Salad

8-12 radishes, sliced thin
2 heads of radicchio, leaves removed and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup golden raisins
3 scallions, sliced
1 avocado, diced
juice of 1 lemon
1T olive oil
pinch of salt (1/8 t)
freshly ground black pepper to taste

Whisk the oil into the lemon juice in a small container and blend until emulsified. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and toss to combine. Serve immediately.

Serves 4, <100mg sodium per serving


  1. *Whew* I was beginning to become concerned. You haven't eaten anything since last October!

  2. Extreme dieting? No, actually we've worked on some new recipes, but none of them are ready for prime time - all need another go with some changes.

  3. I just found your awesome blog! I'm just starting a low sodium diet due to hypertension (at 27???); can't wait to try out some of these recipes!

  4. Sorry to hear about that diagnosis, but welcome. We've reduced the sodium in these recipes, but made no effort at reducing cholesterol so you may want to make a few further modifications to make the dishes more heart healthy. Good luck with cooking lo-so. It is hard at first, but gets easier as you get better at it (and your taste buds adjust).
