Meyer Lemon, Radish, Cucumber and Tomato Salad with Citrus Dressing

January 19, 2012

Author Notes: This salad was born from a snowy tromp to the market and a craving for Meyer lemons. I didn't have anything in particular in mind as I filled my basket, other than crisp textures and bright flavors. A refreshing, citrusy salad was the end result - deeply satisfying!BlueKaleRoad
