We absolutely love heirloom produce. Here, we’re using French Breakfast radishes, a gourmet variety that originated in the late 19th Century. These radishes are longer than most, with bright pink and creamy white hues. We’re tossing them with butter lettuce, fennel and fingerling potatoes to take advantage of their elegant, juicy flavor. We’re serving them up another French institution, a toasted baguette spread with luscious goat cheese.

Hearty Spring Salad with French Breakfast Radishes & Goat Cheese Toast ingredients
Cook the quinoa:
1 Cook the quinoa:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Heat 2 medium pots of salted water to boiling on high. Once the first pot of water is boiling, add the quinoa. Cook 14 to 16 minutes, or until tender. Drain thoroughly and transfer to a large bowl. Set aside.

2 Prepare the ingredients:

While the quinoa cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the baguette in half horizontally, then crosswise on an angle. Cut off and discard the root end of the lettuce; separate the leaves. Cut the potatoes into ½-inch-thick rounds. Trim off and discard the stem ends of the radishes; cut the radishes into bite-sized wedges. Cut off and discard the fennel stems and fronds; thinly slice the bulb. Pick the mint leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Peel and mince the shallot to get 2 tablespoons of minced shallot (you may have extra); place the minced shallot in a medium bowl with the vinegar.

Add the potatoes to the second pot of boiling water. Cook 8 to 10 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from heat. Thoroughly drain the potatoes and set aside to cool slightly.

Toast in the oven 6 to 8 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool slightly. When cool enough to handle, spread the goat cheese onto the toasted baguette pieces. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.
