What's green and white and red all over? This perfect little side salad.

This is a pretty and simple spinach salad that can be made in 10 minutes. It does not contain massive bits of wisdom or revelation, no tricks of the trade, just an attractive salad you can turn to time and time again. But even a salad recipe as simple as this is just a boilerplate for whatever you have around or feel inspired by at the market.

Pair this with Polenta with Sautéed Mushrooms for a lovely vegetarian lunch or dinner. Or serve it with Pan-Fried Pork Chops and Mashed Potatoes for a totally different kind of meal!

Spinach and Radish Salad Ingredients

  • Extra-virgin olive oil – Choose an olive oil you really like here. There are so few ingredients in this salad that the olive oil becomes a starring player.
  • Red wine vinegar – You can substitute in other types of vinegar like rice wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar.
  • Honey – Balances out the acidity of the vinegar.
  • Thyme – Adds so much herby flavor to the salad.
  • Baby spinach
  • Radishes – Use any radishes you like — if you can find watermelon radishes, use them; they are gorgeous and fully live up to their name. A mix of radishes makes this simple salad very eye-catching.
  • Feta – Cubed or crumbled.

Variations

  • Don’t feel like spinach? Use arugula, mesclun, or slivered romaine.
  • No feta in the fridge? Goat cheese is great, as is crumbled cotija or queso fresco. Ricotta salata is also super groovy.

How to Make Spinach and Feta Salad

  1. Make the dressing: Mix together the olive oil, vinegar, honey, thyme leaves, salt, and pepper.
  2. Assemble: Toss together the spinach, radishes, and feta. Add the dressing and toss.
