Cut both ends off 2 bunches of radishes.

Wash well in a colander.

Grate the Radish either with a hand grater,

or you can use a mandolin with the nice little holder to keep your fingers safe! .

Slice the celery into thin slices

Add to the shredded radish.

Gather the ingredients for the dressing, You can use either Sherry vinegar or Balsamic, or a little of both.
The amount of onion you may also want to vary. You can also add more later. I was thrilled with the way that
the onion makes the vinaigrette taste. It isn't strong at all.

Peel onions cut into 1-2 inch chunks. Puree, add remaining ingredients except oils. Puree until smooth. With processor running pour in oils. You can cut down on the oil if you want. I made a batch with half the oil and it was great.

Chop the parsley....

Add the dressing and let it sit for a few hours.
Before serving add the parsley.

Here is how you get a nice round molded look.

To make the nice dome presentation, put it in a small bowl and pack it down lightly.

push the one side to slide it out.

Slide it out on your hand or a spatula and then place on a bed of lettuce.

Close up shot, shows how nicely the salad keeps it's shape molded.
