Harvest Monday: June 9, 2014 - Radish and Arugula Salad (with Chives and Poached Egg)

I was put in my place last Harvest Monday after complaining about having nothing but chives - it turns out some fellow gardeners would have been happy with what I had!

In addition to chives this week, I have harvested radish and arugula.

This is the first year in many that I bothered to grow radishes; I interplanted them with sugar peas.  But I want the focus to be on the peas now so I cleaned out the radishes even though many weren't quite ready.  Ah well, I still ended up with a useable 5 ounces.

And the greens are finally happening.  They sure don't weigh much but the 1.75 ounces of arugula I harvested is plenty for this lunch size salad.

Especially with the addition of a poached egg!  Just add your favourite vinaigrette to some arugula and sliced radishes, along with shaved radicchio, grilled baguette slices and a poached egg for a light lunch.


  1. Your lunch looks delicious. I really like poached eggs.

  2. That is a beautiful salad. I won't chastise you for complaining about a small harvest, we've all been there...

  3. Your radishes look lovely! And that is one yummy looking lunch - it's just wonderful when the greens start flowing after such a long, cold winter.

  4. I have to admit I did a nice job on the plate for this picture (as opposed to some of my pics, oh my gosh!). Looks rather elegant ...

    And I will eat poached eggs on almost anything!
