This creamy-yet-crunchy slaw would be fantastic layered into your taco this week.
½ bunch radishes, washed and trimmed of green tops, a thinly sliced into matchsticks
1 medium, ripe avocado, pitted
¼ cup water
1 lime, juiced
½ cup cilantro leaves
Sea salt and pepper
1. In a blender, mix the avocado, water, lime juice, cilantro and a healthy pinch of salt. Blend until completely smooth, adding more water as needed to achieve the consistency of a pourable dressing.
2. Add the radishes to a bowl, and toss with dressing. Season with salt and pepper, and an extra squeeze of lime, as needed. Set aside until ready to use.
Tossed with a bright, zesty dressing, raw cauliflower shines in this simple salad.
