We sought a new kind of salad, one that made the salad-eater feel super cool and way ahead of the curve...on the salad vanguard, if you will. Here is our invention: the handheld salad. Never mind that a spring roll was similar and, well, invented first -- this is something different. Maybe we'll never have a mess of outdated salad in a bowl or plate again!
Raddichio Handheld Salad
raddichio (cut into leaves, rinsed and dried)
strawberries (hulled and cut into spears)
goat cheese (rolled into tiny egg shapes)
Poppy Seed Dressing:
1 tbsp. honey
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. champagne vinegar
juice of one lemon
1 tsp. poppy seeds
sea salt and cracked pepper
Lie the raddichio leaves down like a cup. Fill each up with pea shoots, strawberries, goat cheese balls, and top with a piece of honeycomb. Whisk the dressing up and spoon it over the handhelds. Season with salt and pepper and eat carefully.
