Marinated Florida Radish and Cucumber Salad with Chickpea
<p>Do you remember as a kid one special dish at the dinner table the signaled the peak of the growing season of summer? For me that was my grandmother’s tomato, cucumber and onion salad marinated in oil, vinegar with fresh herbs from her garden. This recipe is a southern take on that salad. See how many Florida grown veggies you can use and make this a real farmers market salad.</p>Source: LeClercq Family Cookbook (Entered by Cheryl Hedger)
