Radish and Avocado Salad

Sometimes you want a salad but you don't want lettuce.  Know what I'm sayin?  You don't?  Come on, don't tell me that sometimes you wish you could have that cold, fresh, crispy, crunchy satisfaction you get from a salad without all the bulk of the lettuce base.  If the salad is meant as a starter, you don't want it to get so big and heavy that you're too full for the rest of the meal.  Nowwww you get where I'm coming from.  (Right?)

Just thinly cut radishes (or slice em on your mandolin if you're fancy pants) and spread them on a plate with some sliced avocado.  One is very crunchy and the other is very creamy.  Yin and yang.  Throw some cilantro on the top because that will make it all very Mexican.  If you're not a cilantro fan, leave it out - I know how polarizing it can be.  Mix some Greek yogurt with a squeeze of fresh lime and a few dashes of hot sauce.  Drizzle that over the whole thing as your salad dressing. Finally, crumble some cotoja cheese on top. 

If you tried this you would know you can still have the salad experience - a dang good one - without getting too filled up for the main course.  I hope this was life-changing for you.
