Radish, watercress and mozzarella salad with mint and lemon plus Pork Kebabs

Image: Radish, watercress and mozzarella salad with mint and lemon

Don't know about you ... but I just love crunchy radish in a salad, so when I saw this recipe idea I thought ... that looks good, the ingredients just go so well together.

Serves 8

(1.6g carbohydrate per serving)
100 g blanched almonds
200 g radishes
220 g baby leaf watercress
1 green eating apple
juice of ½ large lemon, plus the zest of the lemon to serve
4 x 125g packs buffalo mozzarella
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
sea salt
2 tbsp shredded mint

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4.
2. Scatter the almonds on a small baking tray and toast them in the oven for 10 minutes or until lightly golden; cool, then roughly chop.
3. Trim and slice the radishes and pick over the watercress, discarding any tougher stalks; put them into a large bowl.
4. Shortly before serving, peel and core the apple and slice it into matchsticks, toss with a little of the lemon juice to prevent it from turning brown. Drain the mozzarella and tear it into bite-sized pieces.
5. Put the 2 tablespoons of oil, the remaining lemon juice and the apple into the bowl.

Serve and enjoy with sliced meats or perhaps some pork kebabs?

Lovely. I've got some watercress growing so I shall have to use it in a salad like this once it's ready to harvest.
