Watermelon Radish and Goat Cheese Salad

Total time 30 mins
Yield Serves 4
A watermelon radish is, on first glance, a plain greenish-white root. But slice it open and it reveals a stunning fuchsia interior. They're also known as red-meat or beauty-heart radishes, and you can find seeds at Kitazawa Seed Company (kitazawaseed.com). We love their mild flavor in this simple salad.

Ingredients

  • 2 watermelon radishes (8 1/2 oz. total), peeled, quartered, and sliced
  • 1/2 English cucumber, halved and sliced
  • 3/4 cup dill fronds
  • 1 small shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 head butter lettuce, leaves separated
  • 4 ounces fresh goat cheese
