radish salad, as requested

Remember that radish salad I said I made a few weeks back? It's so simple it really doesn't need a recipe. Probably this picture is plenty to make your own, but I'll list the ingredients just in case.

Olive Oil

You could probably add something spicy (maybe a jalapeño) to jazz it up. Or some cotija cheese? Or really anything. But it's pretty good just like this. Not my finest concoction, mind you. But pretty good.

Also, I should mention, that in something as simple as this the ingredients make all the difference. A perfect avocado and really fresh radishes with good quality olive oil yield a completely different salad than one made with less ideal substitutions.

It's almost Friday, which is my big party prep day. Yay.

Yummmmmy! I'm always looking for something to do with radishes (one of my favorite veggies!). And you are so right about using quality ingredients - the key to making any recipe perfect.

That is gorgeous, and delicious looking. I love simple fresh recipes like that - I'm going to have to keep this on file for a summer get together!

Perfect! It's been 100 here for days and will be for days on end, so this cooling salad is just the ticket.

Lovely. Can't wait to try.

By the way, I've been reading your blog for a while now and I really enjoy it. I was recently awarded a Charming & Honest Award and I'd love to pass the award on to you as well. I hope you can stop by my blog and check out your award!

Minus the cilantro, it sounds like a very yummy salad! The avocado and radish are a great combo.

au contraire esb.

my life ≠ sexy.

i generally spend my weekends dirty in my running clothes (all day), wearing gardening gloves in the backyard, and generally do things like decline an invite from husband to go out to dinner because i have too much squash on the counter and i must make a gratin.

ur jealous. i can tell.
