I’m a bit of a salad snob. I love them. They need a few mandatory things though in order to make me happy. Avocado is non-negotiable. Lots of different flavors and textures. And they need to be substantial! This one is loaded with tons of fresh herbs, ripe avocados, thinly sliced radishes and some farmers market lettuce, this Ginger Soy Herb Salad is one for the rotation! It’s perfect alongside the Bo Ssam Dinner Party menu but it’s also perfect on it’s own. Serve it up with some grilled fish, shrimp, steak or chicken and it’s a meal in itself!

    This looks so good and refreshing! What would you sub for grape seed oil and agave? I have avocado oil and liquid stevia, would that be sufficient.

    I see watermelon radishes. Where do you find those? I never see them at my grocery store or the farmers market I go to in L.A.

    I made this tonight! It is such a lovely and vibrant salad – the fresh mint is especially delicious with the dressing. I’m new to you, Gaby, and quickly becoming a huge fan:)
