I find myself craving brightness as soon as the sun shines with more regularly and so I sought out this salad with clean flavors and the crunch which makes vegetables, in my mind, worth their weight, well, on the grocery store scale.
Secretly I have craved having my own thin slicing device, but when I held it in my hands, wielding the power to make the shaved cucumbers of my dreams, it was a little daunting. The blade was scarily sharp and I doubted whether the radishes would live up to my standards. In a situation which so rarely happens in my life outside the kitchen, I was pleasantly surprised by the truth in advertising about how quickly and neatly the mandolin/ier worked.
After getting over my wonder about my razor thin radishes, I decided would make this salad again. Unfortunately, I did not precisely measure the oil in the dressing and I reprimanded myself, inside my insides, because the dressing was a little on the oily side. I would probably add more lemon juice and some powered garlic to the dressing as well, but it was successfully crunchy and even dressed, stayed crunchy overnight! Two pleasant surprises in two days! Be still my infrequently pleased heart!
