Elegant Radish and Cucumber Salad, the Height of Simplicity in Two Complementary Colours
Elegant Radish and Cucumber Salad

I made this delicious radish and cucumber salad with a crinkle-cutter. I dressed it with a combination of white wine vinegar, oil, honey, Himalayan salt and ground green peppercorns. This salad benefits from an hour of marination in the aforementioned vinaigrette. Elegance is not found in dishes with too many ingredients, rather, an elegant entrée or salad is composed of as few ingredients as possible, prepared to their best advantage. The hackneyed pop-culture phrase “simple but elegant” holds no sway at Elegant Survival, because elegance  and simplicity are natural partners, just like these radishes and cucumbers.

The elegant radish can be eaten spread with a little butter, French style, usually as a breakfast component; as a fresh snack with a little salt and pepper, or sliced thinly in a tea-sandwich.
 Radishes are an effective liver-tonic the morning after a dinner party.

Red or purple cabbage is a health-promoting, cancer-inhibiting, cruciferous vegetable.
Green cabbage can be marinated in a salad European-style, stuffed as choux farcí, or stir-fried with other vegetables the Chinese way.
Cauliflower can be sautéed, steamed or baked. Popular methods of preparation include as a component of  casseroles, blanched on vegetable platters with dips,  and served in chunks with tahini sauce.
