Cucumber Radish Salad

I'll say it -- I love fresh veggies. I love to make little salads and slaws. It's true. Unfortunately, my husband does not like these tasty creations, so I make them for myself when I'm home alone. Today was just such an opportunity, and this quick salad did not disappoint.

This is just about exactly from a recipe I saw in Real Simple (but with much less oil), and my recollection is that the original recipe was 100% on program. Sadly, I lost the page I ripped out but no matter! The recipe is very forgiving and you can add in anything you like. Crisp, refreshing and, well, perfection.

One important note: the veggies pickle a bit if left to soak. I prefer this salad made shortly before I eat it, rather than making ahead. It's still good, but more like pickles later.
