This was a terrific salad and one I'd make again! I used a mandolin to slice all of the veggies. The dressing is light and married perfectly with the veggies. Thank you for sharing the recipe. :-)

Great way to use radishes! This is easy to make, colorful and has a nice flavor. There's no heavy dressing and it's not too salty. This is great with Asian foods as well as pretty much anything else. Thanx for sharing!

Awesome! I was looking for a way to use up the radishes my garden was putting out and found this. Nice flavor and not heavy with oil. I would have taken a picture for you but DH finished it when I wasn't looking.
