Serves: 4-6

 Ingredients  About 20 Radish Seed Pods   4 cups Red Lettuce    Vinegar Reduction   1 cup Apple Cider Vinegar  1/2 cup Sugar      Quick Pickling Liquid   1 cup Apple Cider Vinegar  1/2 cup sugar  1 tbsp salt

Ingredients

About 20 Radish Seed Pods 

4 cups Red Lettuce 

Vinegar Reduction

1 cup Apple Cider Vinegar

1/2 cup Sugar

Quick Pickling Liquid

1 cup Apple Cider Vinegar

1/2 cup sugar

1 tbsp salt

Directions

Put apple cider vinegar and sugar in a pot and bring to a boil. Let simmer until the liquid halves in volume. Allow it to cool, then pour it into a jar and store in the fridge.

Cut stems off pods and slice in half (it’s piddly but worth it!) In a bowl, combine 1 cup apple cider vinegar, salt and sugar. Put the sliced radish pods in the vinegar mixture for 20 minutes, then drain.

Lightly dress the salad in the apple cider vinegar reduction, place a few seed pods on top and serve.
