I called this a Spring Radish Salad because for a hot second it felt like spring. And now it’s snowing and I’m bundled in my warmest sweater and about to watch the winter olympic opening ceremonies and am wondering why I ever thought it was time to say the word “spring”. Maybe we can call this the “Valentine’s Day Radish Salad”, with its pretty pink pastels. Or the “Bathing Suit Season Is Coming Radish Salad”, with its 34 calories per serving. Or the “I Guess I’ll Eat The Rest Of This Cottage Cheese With A Spoon Radish Salad”, with its use of cottage cheese as a simple, low-fat dressing (side note: I only just learned they have cottage cheese (i.e. favorite food) in the Netherlands).

Anyways, we made this He Who Shall Not Have A Proper Name Radish Salad during an infamous Hot Mess, a day in which two food bloggers descend upon a kitchen and make a royally Hot (albeit tasty) Mess. This recipe was the brainchild of my other Hot Mess half, who is Dutch and therefore uses a fraction of the calories/salt/fat that we Americans are accustomed to. The result? A delightfully light and flavorful salad with a simple ingredients list and even simpler preparation.
