Made this salad, but use dressing from pecan and spinach salad, because I didn't want a cooked dressing. So Good. My guys really love mushrooms and radishes so they loved it, and it looks so pretty.

Made this with spinach from my garden for supper. The dressing was very good and combined well with the salad ingredients!

I very much like that this recipe is for two, but I find myself doubling and tripling it quite often.
