    Radish, watercress and mozzarella salad with mint and lemon plus Pork Kebabs

    Don't know about you ... but I just love crunchy radish in a salad, so when I saw this recipe idea I thought ... that looks good, the ingredients just go so well together.

    Serves 8
    (1.6g carbohydrate per serving)
    100 g blanched almonds
    200 g radishes
    220 g baby leaf watercress
    1 green eating apple
    juice of ½ large lemon, plus the zest of the lemon to serve
    4 x 125g packs buffalo mozzarella
    2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
    sea salt
    2 tbsp shredded mint

    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4.
    2. Scatter the almonds on a small baking tray and toast them in the oven for 10 minutes or until lightly golden; cool, then roughly chop.
    3. Trim and slice the radishes and pick over the watercress, discarding any tougher stalks; put them into a large bowl.
    4. Shortly before serving, peel and core the apple and slice it into matchsticks, toss with a little of the lemon juice to prevent it from turning brown. Drain the mozzarella and tear it into bite-sized pieces.
    5. Put the 2 tablespoons of oil, the remaining lemon juice and the apple into the bowl.

    Serve and enjoy with sliced meats or perhaps some pork kebabs?
