This salad ticks all the boxes we love in a salad:  simple, fresh, crispy flavours with crunchiness of radishes enhanced by the softness of the cucumber flesh, all happily married under the complexity of the mustard dressing.

I like to serve it alongside the dishes with rather milder flavours and softer textures such as burgers or roast meets or chicken.

You need:
4-5 medium radishes 
1 medium cucumber
1 tbs of coriander leaves
3-4 green shallots finely slices
A bunch of mesclun salad or any salad leaves to your liking

Mustard dressing:
2 tbs of extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp of Dijon mustard
1 tbsp of red wine vinegar
1 tsp of honey
Freshly ground pepper and salt

Wash and thinly slice the radishes, a cucumber and the shallots.  Place in a bowl together with the salad leaves and chopped coriander leaves.  

Combine all the ingredients for the dressing in a small jar, give them a good shake, check the seasoning and pour over the salad. Give it a toss and serve alongside your main course.
