When beautiful produce is available, sometimes the best way to cook it is, well, not to! This raw salad is crunchy, vibrant and fresh. Use a mandoline to give the vegetables the paper-thin treatment.

Ingredients

Directions

Special equipment: a mandoline slicer

Shave the beets into paper-thin rounds, the carrot into paper-thin slices on a bias and the radish into paper-thin half-moons on a mandoline. Thinly slice the cabbage with a sharp knife.

Whisk together the oil, honey, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl until well combined. Set aside.

Lay the beet, carrot and radish pieces all over the bottom of a large serving platter. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the vinaigrette. Gently toss the cabbage, watercress and remaining vinaigrette together in a medium bowl until well coated. Pile the cabbage and watercress in the middle of the platter and top with the goat cheese, pepitas, basil and chives.

Cook's Note

A watermelon radish looks just like its fruit namesake -- green on the outside and bright pink on the inside. Look for it, in the summer, at farmer's markets or the specialty produce section in your grocery store.
