from the blog Follow my Recipe


  • A bunch of radish
  • 1 root of Mooli (daikon)
  • Handful of baby carrots
  • Any medley of radish roots
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tangerine
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp of chili flakes (less or more according to taste)
  • Handful of crumbled Feta
  • some fresh Parmesan cheese grated for the finish
  • Slivers of fresh basil
Give the radishes, moolis and carrots a rough chop.

Heat the olive oil in a pan. Throw in the chili flakes and 4 cloves of chopped garlic.
Gently grind the remaining single clove of garlic and salt in a mortar and pestle. Grinding the garlic infuses its juices in the dressing.
Gently scoop the garlic and chili flakes from the heated oil and add to the pestle. Grate in some lemon zest and continue to slowly mix in the pestle.

Add the juice of one lemon and tangerine (carefully deseed before you squeeze in). Use a fork to gently mash the dressing.

Add the remaining oil.

Toss the dressing in the radishes, mooli and carrots.

Add the crumbled feta and Parmesan.

Dress with slivers of basil.
