Radish, Carrot & Cilantro Salad

Bright carrots and radishes pop in this citrusy salad. My husband likes it with anything from the grill. I like to pile it on tacos. —Christina Baldwin, Covington, Louisiana

    This is an interesting and unusual salad. My husband loves radishes and he enjoyed this dish. He said the radishes themselves were a little bland but he liked the overall taste of the salad. I had no idea what to expect but the citrus flavor was a pleasant surprise.

    I've rated this salad as a 4*recipe. This type of salad was unusual to me and the taste was interesting. I admit that it was hard to detect the citrus ingredient taste. The only thing is that I used about 1/2 bag peeled baby carrots and sliced them. I used LESS the radishes, since they were quite big! I did not have green onion, so I'd used 1/2 a yellow onion, finely chopped. I used my food processor to chop the cilantro. Thank you for sharing this recipe-I must say that I did enjoy preparing the salad! delowenstein
