Radish Salad with Sesame Ginger Dressing
This weekend at the farmer's market I picked up a watermelon radish. It is a large, round radish that has a pink center and a green skin. I was so excited by this find, I decided to design a salad around it. This simple salad takes five minutes to throw together and is incredibly crunchy and filling. It's also packed with healthy cruciferous veggies like kale and bok choy and gets it's intense flavor from the radishes themselves and a very simple, light dressing. You can create this with any type of radish, but whatever variety you choose, I recommend slicing as thinly as possible.
Recipe after the jump.
