Rad Radish Salad



Rad Radish Salad

Think you hate radishes? Think again.
Radishes: they’re root vegetables in the cabbage family, and they can taste strong or even really spicy. Does that mean you have to hate them? Of course not! They’re gorgeous, super-crunchy, and even, when you get past the spiciness, quite sweet. 
Here's the fab salad Grover and Sam put together: a little crunchy, a little spicy, a little sweet, a lot delicious.
