A simple spring salad of juicy, crunchy cherry radish, peppery arugula and rich, buttery avocado flavoured with an easy salad dressing, which is a creamy mixture of avocado and buttermilk.

  • 1 Medium avocado, diced
  • 200 ml Buttermilk
  • 1/2 Onion, chopped
  • 1 handful Arugula leaves
  • 3 tbsp Fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp Garlic, minced
  • 1/3 tsp Paprika powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 bunch Radishes
  • 1 Small avocado
  • 1/2 tbsp Lemon juice
  • Arugula leaves
  1. Combine all the dressing ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. Adjust the seasoning, to taste. Transfer to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. With a mandoline or a sharp knife, slice the radishes as thin as possible. Cut the avocado in half lengthways and remove the stone and skin. Cut into thick slices then into pieces. Toss with the lemon juice.
  3. Arrange the thinly sliced radishes in a serving bowl, and top with arugula leaves and avocado. Drizzle the dressing over and serve immediately.

I love making avocado dressing, it is so creamy. It is a great idea to balance the bitterness of radishes with that. Gotta try it when I see a bunch of nice, red radishes! :)

Mother Rimmy 1/5/14 14:51

I don't know why I don't ever add radishes to a salad, much less make them the star. They're so refreshing!

A gorgeous salad Angie! I normally just throw avocado in the salad, never in the dressing. Your dressing appears quite scrumptious and one that could be used on a variety of salads.
