Is this an exciting recipe? No. This is a pretty and simple salad that can be made in 10 minutes.  No 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 as simple as this is but a boilerplate for whatever you have around, or feel inspired by at the market.

Don’t feel like spinach?  Use arugula, or meslun or slivered romaine.

Don’t have feta?  Goat cheese is great, as is crumbled cotija or queso freso.  Ricotta salata, also super groovy.

Use any radishes you like –  if you can find watermelon radishes, use them; they are gorgeous, fully living up to their name.  A mix makes this simple salad very eye catching.

Use an olive oil you really like here – there are so few ingredients in this salad that the olive oil becomes a starring player.
