Radish and Citrus Salad with Candied Shallots


This recipe is from Josephine Proul, executive chef at the farm-to-table restaurant Local 111 in small-town Philmont, NY.

Proul told that the idea for this salad was that it'd be like a radish crudo, made with thinly sliced watermelon and Easter egg radishes. "Some people think radishes are spicy or bitter, but this salad has some contrast in it," she says. There's citrus for acidity, a mint vinaigrette for texture and freshness and almond, "which plays like cheese or meat for a rounding effect," she explains.



2 Watermelon radishes
1 bunch Easter egg or similar radish mix
1/4 cup soaked cranberries (equal parts cranberry juice and rosé wine)
1/4 cup candied shallots
1 ruby red grapefruit, segmented
1 cara cara orange, segmented
1/8 cup toasted almonds
preferred amount of mint vinaigrette
micro greens, for finishing
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
mint leaf, for garnish


1/4 bunch mint
2 cloves garlic
1 shallot
1 teaspoon buckwheat honey
1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1/4 cup champagne vinegar
3/4 cup pure extra-virgin olive oil

Candied Shallots:

4 shallots, sliced thin on a mandolin
2 sprigs thyme
pinch of sea salt and freshly groun pepper
1/4 cup raw organic sugar (coconut sugar would be ideal)
1/3 cup champagne vinegar

(As always, choose organic content and fresh content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe. Also, as with all fruits and vegetables, wash vegetables before cutting or adding to the recipe.)



1For the dressing:

1. In a blender put everything except the oil, and mix to a purée.

2. Slowly add the oil while blending on low to make the emulsification.

3. Taste and adjust seasoning.

For the candied shallots:

1. In a small sauce pot, heat sugar and vinegar to a simmer.

2. With a mandolin, slice shallots thin and place in a bowl and toss with salt and pepper and the thyme springs.

3. Pour the hot vinegar mixture over seasoned shallots, set aside to cool, stirring once or twice to make sure all shallots are in the liquid. * You can always press with another small bowl to avoid stirring.

For assembly:

1. With a mandolin, slice watermelon radish thin and place in cold water. Also slice the Easter egg radish oblong about 1/4-inch thick and place in cold water. The water helps bleed out some color so it doesn’t change the whole salad pink. Soak for about 10 minutes.

2. In a mixing bowl, add the drained-soaked radishes, orange and grapefruit segments, mint, candied shallots and cranberries, mint vinaigrette season with salt and pepper. Toss together, taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.

3. On a large round plate assemble the salad with the thin slices or watermelon radish on the bottom spread out carpaccio-esque, spread out the remaining salad, top with micro greens and toasted almonds.
