Carrot & Watermelon Radish Salad
Why I Love This Recipe
FEATURING: Carrots, watermelon radishes, garlic and cilantro (or parsley or carrot tops).
A quick, colourful & refreshing salad with an asian twist that will brighten your day! This salad is great in sandwiches, as a side with asian noodle dishes and in asian soups too.
