Watermelon Radish Holiday Salad with Asian Citrus Dressing


5oz spring mix salad, or a salad mix of your choice
A large handful of arugula
A large handful of spinach
2 cups thinly shredded red cabbage
2 sweet pears, peeled and cubed
2-3 watermelon radishes, peeled and thinly sliced (then halved if larger discs)
2 tbsp gomashio (Japanese sesame seasoning)

For the Asian citrus dressing:
2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1-1/2 tbsp honey, or to taste
3 tbsp freshly squeezed citrus juice (a mix of lemon & lime or juice from Meyer lemon, grapefruit, or orange)
1-1/2 tsp soy sauce or tamari
1/4 tsp dried chile flakes


In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the dressing.

In a large salad bowl, combine the spring mix salad, arugula, spinach, red cabbage, pear, watermelon radish, and Japanese sesame seasoning. Then pour in the dressing and toss well to combine.

Let stand for 10 minutes. Taste and make any adjustments if needed. When ready to serve, sprinkle a little more Japanese sesame seasoning on top.
