As with many of the wonderful salads we eat, we grow most of the vegetables on our property. This fresh salad includes fresh radishes picked right from our garden this morning and a perfectly ripe avocado, picked from one of our trees a few days ago. It also includes some freshly picked and chopped chives.
No special equipment is needed for the preparation of this salad.
