Served this at a BBQ. 5 adults and 3 kids aged 5, 7 and 10 and the lot went so I guess that speaks for itself

light and tasty, i added the dressing and let it sit for awhile to marinate. this made the onion alittle milder and the overall flavour really nice

I wasn't sure about this recipe as I'm not a great fan of celery, but with lots of radish to use up I gave it a go. I was pleasantly surprised - a light, tasty salad and something a bit different. The only change I made was to add seasoning to the dressing.

A very summery and refreshing salad - my boyfriend liked it, but I think something was missing. I added a couple of apples to given proportions and that (almost) did the job. Maybe adding more radishes would help? You'll have to judge it yourselves, but it's definitely worth trying!
