Pea shoot, radish and spring onion salad with herb mayonnaise
Saturday 06 June 2009
All three of these salad ingredients can be easily planted by children or adults and will grow reasonably quickly; and what's more, there are quite a few varieties of radishes and spring onions on the market as well as from seed catalogues these days.
You can also plant a mixture of peas, sugar snaps and mangetout which will continue growing through the winter – some of which are known as snow peas, hence their ability to withstand the cold weather. Even the herbs for this mayonnaise can be easily grown by the children, so they can lay claim to the whole dish.
You could get the kids to help you make a homemade mayonnaise for this recipe, or just buy a good-quality version.
15-20 radishes, washed and trimmed
A couple of handfuls of pea tendrils, washed and dried
8 spring onions, cleaned
A couple of good pinches of sea salt
For the dip
2tbsp chopped green herbs (such as parsley, chives, tarragon or chervil)
3-4tbsp good quality or homemade mayonnaise
Mix the herbs with the mayonnaise and season if necessary.
Cut the radishes in half lengthways if they are large and the spring onions into two or three sections lengthways.
Arrange mixed or in individual piles on plates with the dip in a pot or spooned on to the plate.
