Radish & Orange Salad

Anyone can throw a salad together but for those who just need some inspiration here you go. I had some yummy Trader Joe's Orange Muscat Champagne Vinegar in the fridge and thought it would go great with all of the radishes I had from my CSA box. For all of you folks who have a crazy amount of radishes and don't know what to do with them just toss them in a salad and enjoy! 

Makes 4 Small Salads

1 daikon radish, peeled & sliced thin
1 large watermelon radish, peeled & sliced thin
1-2 navel oranges, peeled & cut into cubes
2 avocados, peeled, pitted and diced
3 carrots, sliced

2 cup arugula
2 cups mixed greens
10 mint leaves (optional)

1/4 cup orange muscat champagne vinegar*

1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tbs olive oil

Mix the dressing and set aside. Add all of the other ingredients into a salad bowl and toss with the dressing a little at a time until you have as much or as little dressing as you like. 

*If you don't have the dressing above just juice an orange and add it into the red wine vinegar and oil.
