About a month ago, my sister called me and wanted help recreating a salad that she and her girls had absolutely loved at a restaurant earlier this year. Tart and tangy with a slight Asian twist, the crunch of the radishes, along with the tender beans and peas; the salad is a unique combination of flavors that are fantastically fresh tasting. She was so happy with the salad that we came up with, she texted twice later that week to say thanks for the recipe. (the recipe that I hadn’t even tasted yet!)
Naturally, when my sister and I were hanging out together last weekend, this salad was on the menu. I normally don’t enjoy cold bean salads, but this one totally works for me. This is a great potluck or picnic salad for summer. The salad is delicious cold or at room temperature.
