Do you want a side salad with some heat but avoiding chilli and spices? Then radish is your choice. Here I have used three coloured radish but this works just as well with the basic red variety that is common in most supermarkets. This is a salad to accompany other dishes, it is not a good source of carbohydrate or protein so cannot form the only part of a balanced meal. I have also added some nasturtium petals – these can be omitted if you are strictly following the low fodmap diet, they can also add to the heat of the dish.
1 bag of radish
A bag of green salad leaves (I used mixed chard and red lettuce.)
One or two edible washed nasturtium flowers
Wash then prepare the radishes three ways. – thinly slice, slice in two and prepare radish flowers.
Radish flowers are made by cutting a zigzag pattern with a knife half way along the radish then separating it in half – makes two flowers, then slice the base to provide a flat surface for it to sit on.
Add the washed salad leaves and radish to the dish with some nasturtium petals and chopped chard stems for colour.
Serve as a side salad, you could add some dressing – but do check for those fodmaps!
