2 tablespoons aged sweet red vinegar (or balsamic)
1 handful frisee leaves (or any other nice leaves)
1 handful baby spinach
1 handful rocket
1 oak lettuce, leaves separated
1 handful coriander
1 small bunch dill, leaves picked
pickled purple radish
*dirt(y) hand harvested dried wakame is from Storm Bay, Tasmania
To make the radish pickle, slice 2 radishes on a mandolin or Japanese slicer. Spread the radish over a tray and sprinkle with ½ teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon of sugar. Leave to sit for half an hour. Discard any liquid before splashing over 1 tablespoon of rice vinegar. Set aside until ready to assemble the salad.
Rehydrate the wakame in boiling water for a few minutes until it becomes bright green colour and the leaves are soft. Slice into bite size pieces and set aside.
Combine olive oil, 2 teaspoons salt flakes, lemon juice, sugar and vinegar to make a dressing.
Combine salad leaves, herbs, wakame and radish and dressing in a bowl and then divide amongst plates or bowls.
Serves 4 as a starter or side.
