apple, radish, and carrot salad with dill & poppy dressing

Published April 14, 2010 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

so the other day i was looking for something to do with the radishes i bought. i came up with this salad. i love adding carrot greens into things because they add a different sort of fresh to a dish. in this one, they play really well off the dill in the dressing.  i used agave syrup to sweeten it versus sugar. (it’s glycemic index is lower than sugar, and since it’s a syrup, it blends into liquids easier.)

i used to have one of those old-fashioned peelers that doubled as a corer. now i have a very nice swivel peeler, but no corer! no fear! a simple V cut into the center of your halved apples will do the trick.

* 5-6 radishes, thinly sliced
