Shaved Radish, Carrot, Cucumber Salad with Tangerines and Microgreens

I keep seeing these gorgeous raw vegetable salads all over the web and I wanted one for myself.  So that’s what I made for lunch the other day.  I started with beautiful, thinly sliced veggies…

Added some other goodies, and ended up with this masterpiece of a salad:

Pretty and fresh.  Healthy and tasty.  Win, win.  And it’s a good thing too, because I ate the entire platter by myself.

    LOVE the design of this salad – making it tonight with the addition of shaved fennel. Thanks for being an edible artist. :)
