Challenge Accepted! Radish Cucumber Salad- Taste of Home

I've been a member of the Taste of Home online community since 2002.   One of the fun things there are the challenges issued by the Community's manager, Sue.    She issued a challenge this week to make something from the front or back page of our grocery store circular.    I chose radishes, and zeroed in on this simple recipe from Reminisce May/June 2002.

Since I'd already prepped all my veggies when I brought them home from the store, this came together superquick.   I left the cucumbers and radishes in larger chunks, and I also added some red, yellow and orange bell pepper that I needed to use up.    I enjoyed it as a nice light dinner by piling it inside a tortilla.    I used about half of the olive oil mixture, it seemed like plenty to me with the larger chunks of veggies.
