Watermelon Radish and Cara Cara Orange Salad





Ingredients:

1 large (like tennis ball sized) watermelon radish, thinly sliced
2 Cara Cara oranges, peeled and sliced into thin rounds
1/4 cup crumbled feta
2 tablespoons Prosecco vinegar
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Directions:
Toss the radish, orange and feta together in a small bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss to evenly distribute. Serve immediately.

My thoughts:
I love getting the local box in our weekly produce delivery. Winter can be sort of depressing produce wise in the mid-Atlantic but this week they had my favorite kind radish: watermelon! I admit, the pretty color is a good bit of the appeal but as my husband pointed out, it starts out sweet and then has that peppery radish bite. This makes them a great candidate for salads like this one. The favor is a wonderful contrast with the sweet Cara Cara oranges and the dressing and cheese add a salty, savory note. A great winter salad that stands up to richer foods.
