This is the kind of salad that I'd be really happy to serve at a dinner party because it's colorful and fresh but doesn't take up lots of precious prep time. It's happy sitting in the fridge for a few hours, too!

I was going to make you all a leek fried rice for today's post, but alas the grocery store was just out of leeks (like I saw another shopper checking out with the last leek)! They did have these ever-so-lovely Easter egg radishes though --> look at those colors! They are such a pleasure to photograph. But, fret not, if you can't find multi-colored radishes, this salad is lovely with any variation. I mean, it has 4 ounces of crumbled parmesan, so it's going to taste good with just about anything in it. 

On a side note, there's a tree outside the window I always sit by to write these posts and this week it went from a quarter yellow to over half yellow and it's really, really lovely right now. And there's a bush just down the street from me that went from dark green to flaming red in what seemed like less than a day. And there are now pumpkins everywhere. I want to buy all of them, but I really don't know what to do with them - I have on my editorial calendar several notes like: "pumpkin recipes??? pumpkin seeds! pumpkin fried rice?" So hopefully, I get around to making a pumpkin recipe later this week!

In the meantime, enjoy this crunchy radish and carrot salad.
