Radish Cucumber Salad with Parsley Yogurt Dressing


A perfect spring salad that is endlessly adaptable.

1 head of lettuce, leaves separated, washed & chopped
(or substitute spinach for some or all of the lettuce)
1 cucumber, thinly sliced
5-6 radishes, thinly sliced
1-2 garlic scapes, grated or sliced finely (from the base up to the triangular flower)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds, toasted or raw
Fresh ground black pepper to taste

1/8 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1 garlic clove, crushed, OR 1 garlic scape, minced finely
1/4 cup plain yogurt
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup oil of your choice (Olive Oil or Canola)

Combine the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a glass jar with a fork. Dress the entire salad or serve dressing separately in case you have leftovers, as undressed salads last longer in the refrigerator.
