Radish Salad
with Onion Vinaigrette

1 whole stalk celery
2 bunches radishes
Onion Vinaigrette (recipe follows)  
2 tablespoon chopped parsley
lettuce leaves to make bed for salad

Onion Vinaigrette

1/2 medium onion
2 heaping tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons sherry wine vinegar or 3 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
fresh ground pepper
1/2 cups extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cups vegetable oil

1. Cut both ends off 2 bunches of radishes. Wash well in a colander.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

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

6. Serve in a bowl or mold onto lettuce leaves. Top with a bit of the dressing if you want.
