Winter Radish Citrus Salad with Cinnamon Vinaigrette

This is a great salad to add to your winter holiday menu. It’s bright and tangy and crunchy and endlessly adaptable. I used some oranges and candied pecans here. Feta or blue cheese would be great. Celery or onions or apples and kohlrabi, or avocado would be good too. Grapefruit is really good too. The star here is the cinnamon vinaigrette dressing. It’s bright with just a hum of cinnamon spiciness that pulls all the strong flavors of the salad together.

For this salad use what ever components you like. Here is what I had. There are three oranges there, you can’t see one behind the onion.

Make the Cinnamon Vinaigrette

  • 1/2 cup citrus juice, any kind. I used orange and lemon
  • 2 Tbls olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbls maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Combine all the dressing ingredients in a bowl mix it really well. Taste it to see if you want more maple syrup or salt or olive oil. I needed more olive oil and cinnamon. You want to really taste the cinnamon.

  • Peel the citrus and slice it into bite size pieces. Thinly slice the radishes and cut into bite size pieces add the fruit and radishes to the dressing and toss so it is all coated.

  • You will have a lot of extra liquid from the oranges.

Arrange the radishes and oranges in a clean bowl and top your salad with any nuts, cheese, seeds, or anything else you like and pour the extra juice/dressing over the salad. This is a good salad to serve in individual salad bowls.
