Ribbon Vegetable Salad

Ribbon Vegetable Salad

This easy and very fresh salad is gorgeous and delicious! You can quite easily substitute your favorite vegetables or herbs. I think dill, chives, or parsley would be especially excellent. My family loved this dish. The platter was completely devoured. I think it is a wonderful salad for welcoming spring!

3 medium carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
6 radishes, thinly sliced

3 Tb. apple cider vinegar (or your favorite vinegar)
1 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp. Dijon mustard (I used a Basil Dijon)

1/4 tsp. salt

Use a mandoline or spiral slicer to thinly slice the vegetables. Arrange on the platter and
sprinkle basil on top.

Combine the dressing ingredients and drizzle over the vegetables. Enjoy!
