Summer and Fall is the prime season for some of the most beautiful and delicious vegetables. Who wouldn’t want fresh crisp flavors of raddish, beets and cabbage are combined with a light lemony vinaigrette? When you mix them all together in the eye catching Shaved Vegetable Salad, you can create a stunning dish that will impress any party guest.
Special equipment: a mandoline slicer
Shave the beets into paper-thin rounds, the carrot into paper-thin slices on a bias and the radish into paper-thin half-moons on a mandoline. Thinly slice the cabbage with a sharp knife.
Whisk together the oil, honey, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl until well combined. Set aside.
Lay the beet, carrot and radish pieces all over the bottom of a large serving platter. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the vinaigrette. Gently toss the cabbage, watercress and remaining vinaigrette together in a medium bowl until well coated. Pile the cabbage and watercress in the middle of the platter and top with the goat cheese, pepitas, basil and chives.
