Cabbage, Radish and Turnip Salad with Spicy Dressing



Author Notes: This is a refreshing Spring salad that is at its best when radishes and baby turnips are in season (like now!). The dressing is creamy and slightly spicy, and it perfectly compliments the crunch of the veggies. Iglika Petrova/Sprig of Thyme
