    Fresh and Tasty Orange and Radish Salad -Perfect Accompaniment for Lamb Tagine

    Family Dinner
    Katie was making a Lamb Tagine with Cous Cous,
    She asked for a side dish
    Orange and Radish Salad came to mind
    so I did a bit of research
    First I found a salad on one of my posts, which would do
    Click here
    Also if you have a good look at this post there is a wonderful Chocolate Orange Cake
    Then I found a recipe from  Yotam Ottolenghi
    Used that as a base and here is what I came up with
    It was very popular
    It fed 7 as a side dish

    5 large oranges peels and segmented
    2 bunches of Radishes topped, tailed and sliced
    1 medium red onion finest sliced
    2 tablespoon chopped parsley
    Handful of coriander leaves torn
    Handful of mint leaves torn

    1 cos lettuce torn into pieces


       2 tablespoons lemon juice
       1 garlic clove, peeled  and crushed
       1 teaspoon orange blossom water
       1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
        4 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
        Sea salt
        Freshly  ground black pepper

    Segment the oranges into a large bowl
    Add radishes and sliced red onion
    Add dressing and chopped parsley
    You can make this ahead
    Taste and adjust the seasoning if you think it needs it

    Find a nice flat bowl
    Throw in the Cos lettuce
    Spread the Orange and Radish mixture
    Add the other fresh herbs just before serving
    Very pretty and delicious
