This salad's simplicity allows the fresh vegetables to be the star. The recipe didn't say what type vinegar to use, so I used white balsamic and added some fresh dill which always partners well with green beans. I steamed the green beans for 2 mins and 20 seconds in the micro on high which left them perfectly crisp. This was a welcome change for a nice side salad with dinner. This didn't knock-my-socks-off, but I did enjoy it.

This is really good, with a little tweak. Well, that is, if you are like me, you need to add a bit of stevia or sweetener-of-choice in order to enjoy it. Then, let the concoction marinate for a bit (like overnight - but not necessarily that long - depends on your taste and/or how strong the radishes are). Lutzflact's choice to add dill made a lot of sense to me, as does adding some black olives: those ingredients were in another radish recipe I have learned to love (with added sweetener): matchstick celery, radish slices, minced onion, dill, S&P, and... that bit of sugar. Yum!

If I make this again I will definitely add more vinegar and oil. It was not enough and needed more flavor.
