RADISH CUCUMBER SALAD WITH 'FRENCH DRESSING'
I was mesmerized by the radishes in the market yesterday and knew that I had to buy them. We had hamburgers for dinner tonight, taking advantage of the 22 degree weather in September. A simple crunchy salad seemed like the perfect side dish. Nigel was craving a french dressing (apparently radishes = french dressing in his mind), so we whipped up one based on what we had in the pantry.
