Radish Salad

I got a new recipe last week that is too good not to share! Yes, as the title suggests, it's radish salad. I'm not a great fan of radishes because they are so spicy, but this uses a Daikon radish, which has a much more mild flavor. The recipe actually reminds me of my Memaw's cucumber salad.

1 Daikon radish, peeled and sliced very thin
1/3 cup diced scallions
1/4 cup black olives (whole, sliced, diced -- whatever you fancy)
2 T olive oil
2T vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Simply mix and enjoy! It would probably taste wonderful with a zesty Italian dressing, if you prefer not to do the olive oil and vinegar. I also added a little bit of feta cheese to the dish when I made it at home. Next time I will probably throw in a thinly sliced regular radish as well, to bump up the spice a little bit. Feel free to suggest other improvements!
