Evolution of a salad...

I am not sure how many folks know how long I work on dish before I deem it "finished," but this one has taken nearly two years to shore up.  This little salad featuring radishes  watercress, olives, goat cheese, citrus and lavender started rolling around in my mind long before it made its rudimentary debut at an LGC dinner in March of 2011.  I subsequently revisited the dish at a lovely dinner in April of 2011 and again in February of this year, but the final two tweaks happened in the past couple of weeks.  I took a little inspiration from my friend Andrew, of Houndstooth Vintage, whom I've always admired for placing beautiful items under glass and from my friend Ang, who introduced me to Vom Fass vingars.  Suddenly this little dish is ready for a week-end revival!
