Radish and Sorrel Salad

Photo: Leo Gong; Styling: Dan Becker
For a mere handful of green leaves, sorrel packs a powerful culinary punch. When paired with radishes and a bit of ginger, its fresh, lemony, herbaceous flavor lets you know that spring is finally here.


  • 3 bunches radishes (30 to 36 radishes)
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 10 to 12 sorrel leaves (about 1 box or small bunch)

How to Make It

  1. Trim, rinse, and dry radishes. Slice radishes thinly and put in a bowl. Add rice vinegar, ginger, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Toss to combine.

  2. Lay sorrel leaves in a stack and slice them crosswise into thin ribbons. Toss sorrel with radishes. Add additional salt to taste. Serve immediately.
