  • 20 radishes, thinly sliced

  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced (1 cup)

  • 1 jalapeño, thinly sliced

  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

  • Flaky sea salt

  • 3 ripe Hass avocados—peeled, pitted and sliced

  • 1 cup cilantro leaves

  • 1/2 cup torn basil leaves

How to Make It


In a medium bowl, combine the radishes with the onion, jalapeño, lime juice and the 1 tablespoon of olive oil and toss to coat. Season with salt. Arrange the avocados on a platter, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt. Spoon the radish salad on top, strew with the cilantro and basil and serve as soon as possible.


The ingredients can all be prepped up to 4 hours ahead, but toss the radish mixture with the lime juice and olive oil and then assemble the salad just before 
serving or the radishes will get soggy.
