Radish and Sugar Snap Toss

May 18, 2012

Author Notes: A quick salad for a warm evening, this one has very little acid in the dressing. I just wanted to taste the sweet sugar snap peas and the little peppery bite of the radishinpatskitchen

Serves: 2


  • 2 cups sugar snap peas, sliced in half on the diagonal
  • 5 large red radishes, sliced very thin with a mandoline
  • 3 tablespoons Mirin
