Crunchy Greens with Radish

Crunchy Greens with Radish


Serves 6 (serving size: 3/4 cup)

Letting the raw shallot stand with the salt and vinegar pickles it slightly and mellows the harshness of raw onion. Long spears of romaine make a dramatic presentation. Once brought to the table, you can coarsely chop the lettuce for easier serving.


  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced into rings
  • 2 tablespoons white or red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 1/3 cup fresh pomegranate arils (from about 1/2 pomegranate)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses or honey
  • 1 small head romaine or other long-leaf lettuce (such as green leaf)
  • 1 watermelon radish or black radish (or 3 red radishes), thinly sliced into rounds
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (tender stems and leaves)
