Fantastically Fresh Summer Salad

"This salad is easy to put together and tastes delicious. Don't let the list of ingredients fool you - they are items that you typically have on hand. In the salad, the combination of radishes, strawberries and avocado are a mixture of complimentary tastes and textures. Personally, I don't toss salads with the toppings because the toppings always seem to fall to the bottom of the bowl and you miss out on them."

  1. Excellent salad! The ingredients go very well together. I used aged white cheddar horseradish cheese and that was perfect. I cut the amount of oil in half, but that's all I changed. Thanx for posting!
  2. Congrats! Your tasty is feaured on our homepage today as the "Recipe of the Day" (7/7/11)
  3. This is a beautiful salad! It tastes as good as it looks! We haven't had many good avocados this year, but I had plenty for this salad. The dressing is so good! I had 2 lunch guests yesterday and this is what I served them, along with some great french bread. Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful, delicious salad, a real keeper! Made for an event at KK's site!
  4. Excellent! We brought this to a "summer vegetables" dinner, and it was gone in minutes. We tore the leaves off of the hearts of romaine (the crunchy white parts down the middle) and didn't have quite enough lettuce, so next time we'll use two heads of romaine lettuce. Thanks for a unique recipe!
  5. The dressing is out of this world. The strawberries weren't the best, so I omitted them. Next time I see really tasty berries at the market, I'll certainly make this again. Made for holiday tag, thanks Nif...another Nif-keeper.


I love great food and I particularly like trying cuisines new to me! Although I don't prepare as much food as I used to, creating in my kitchen is still one of my favourite things to do. Enjoy!
