Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk the spring onion, lemon juice, mustard, and sea salt. Whisking, gradually add in the olive oil until it is emulsified into the dressing.
  2. Toss the radishes with a pinch of sea salt and set aside.
  3. Set half of the lettuce leaves in a large bowl and toss with 1 to 2 tablespoons of the prepared vinaigrette. Add the remaining leaves and toss with another 1 to 2 tablespoons vinaigrette.
  4. Toss the radishes with the remaining vinaigrette. Transfer the lettuce to a bowl or serving platter and scatter it with the radishes and spring onions just before serving. Finish with a pinch of sea salt, ground black pepper, and any reserved onion flowers.
