Tangy, Refreshing Radish, Cucumber Rainbow Salad

April 4, 2015

I am the notorious salad queen amongst my friends. Always experimenting with different variations of greens and salad toppings. My usual salads comprise of earthy leafy greens topped with a mixture of seeds and nuts. But today, I decided to do something a little different.

Inspired by William Sonoma’s Radish-Cucumber Salad recipe. I whipped up a beautiful rainbow colored radish cucumber salad drizzled with a rich and tangy anchovy-mustard dressing. It serves as a nice refreshing snack on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Or as a nice side dish at lunch or dinner.
