Elegant Mozzarella Salad

Elegant Mozzarella and Tomato Salad, "Insalata Caprese"

Nutritious Salad with Radish Greens

Three ounces of radish greens contain on average 200mg (20% RDA) of calcium. They also provide 13% of the human RDA (recommended daily allotment) of iron, and  vitamins A (280% RDA) and C (173% RDA). All vegetable-greens are high in vitamin K. magnesium and other beneficial minerals.

This elegant salad is composed of radish greens, cucumbers, and home-roasted almonds. My dressing is a vinaigrette made with white wine vinegar, olive oil, dry mustard, salt, and a few drops of honey.

Elegant Chopped Vegetable Salad

Similar to the diced salads I enjoyed long ago at El Gaucho in Amsterdam, this elegant chopped salad is a refreshing accompaniment to any meat dish.
