Crisp Nappa Summer Salad

Summer time is salad time!

This crisp, crunchy and simple summer salad was inspired by my local CSA veggies.

My farmer dropped off some Nappa cabbage, red radishes, cilantro and jalapeno peppers for my weekly haul.

So, get out to your local market, or join a CSA, grab these veggies, chop em’ up, drizzle on a light dressing and enjoy.

It’s simple, refreshing and totally delish!
