Radish, Cucumber & Apple Salad

What better way to stay refreshed than with a crunchy bit of cool.  And that’s exactly what this salad was.  I’d hoped for a bit of leftovers, but those two hungry bears arriving for dinner had feasted most feverishly, and all that I have to remember this bit of history is the veggie & fruit photo-op’s.

Wait here, while I stir things up…

(Stone ground mustard, olive oil, rice vinegar, a bit of lemon with a bit of salt and pepper.)

…..

Crunch, crunch, crunch…crunch…I lost the photo of the apples, or more precisely, I ditched it. Twas not a pretty post-op.  Mixed up, it wins, but naked, well, it was just ugly.  😉

(The original recipe didn’t call for any jalapeno’s, but I’m a rebel, living for a thrill ride down the back alley of veggie-ness, messing things up with a bit-o-smoke.)  😉

Some folks just have big-time Mojo.  They know how to toss the unexpected into the mix, knowing full well that the result will exceed all expectations.  Dara, the sweet soul behind, Generation Y Foodie, ups the ante with more than a few tasty ideas.  I’m so happy I stumbled upon her food blog. I’ll be perusing her offerings for future feasts.

I never would have thought to put apple, cucumber and radishes in a bowl together, but now I’m sad I waited so long to do so.  I wish I’d thought to put jalapenos in as well!

This salad was so cool, refreshing, and delicious.  I will definitely make this again in the near future.

I’m glad I invested in the new jar of stone ground mustard.  I stood in front of the mustard aisle for a few seconds trying to decide it whatever mustard I already had in my fridge would suffice, but decided to splurge and purchase what the recipe called for.  Definitely worth it!
