Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup walnuts, lighted toasted
  • 1 bunch radishes, thinly sliced (use a mandolin) or sub halved cherry tomatoes when in season
  • 5 Persian (or Turkish) cucumbers, thinly sliced ( or sub 1 large English cucumber)
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 cup chopped cilantro
  • ½ cup chopped mint
  • ½  cup chopped dill
  • 1/4 cup chopped tarragon or chives
  • 1/21 cup crumbled feta (optional)
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, more to taste
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Toast walnuts on a sheet pan, in a 350 F oven for 12-15 minutes, until lightly toasted. Cool.

Place cooled walnuts along with remaining ingredients in a  large bowl and toss well. Taste, adjust salt and lemon. If it tastes bland, add a little more salt.

It should have a refreshing lemony kick.


Notes

Feel free to make ahead, adding the dressing closer to serving time -so herbs stay nice and fresh looking.  Always re-taste before serving, adjusting salt and lemon.
