DELICIOUS! So glad I found this recipe in time for summer! I wish I liked radishes because they are so pretty, but since I don't, I left them out. Love the combo of greens, but I'm sure this will work with all sorts. Perfect healthy, light, easy salad that will go with anything I throw on the grill. Thanks for posting!
