When eaten separately the ingredients in this salad each have a very distinct taste. However, when combined there is a savory taste.
The radicchio is bitter.
The lemon juice is sour.
The watermelon is sweet.
The dressing is salty.
Combined with tangy lemon zest, crisp fennel and leaves, creamy avocado, sharp dijon mustard, smooth olive oil and a tingle of mint the sensation an umami-like sensation results. I could eat this all day. —sabrina
