This is an interesting and unusual salad. My husband loves radishes and he enjoyed this dish. He said the radishes themselves were a little bland but he liked the overall taste of the salad. I had no idea what to expect but the citrus flavor was a pleasant surprise.

I've rated this salad as a 4*recipe. This type of salad was unusual to me and the taste was interesting. I admit that it was hard to detect the citrus ingredient taste. The only thing is that I used about 1/2 bag peeled baby carrots and sliced them. I used LESS the radishes, since they were quite big! I did not have green onion, so I'd used 1/2 a yellow onion, finely chopped. I used my food processor to chop the cilantro. Thank you for sharing this recipe-I must say that I did enjoy preparing the salad! delowenstein
