Sugar Snap Pea Salad with Radishes, Mint and Ricotta Salata

Yield: 4 Servings

I have been searching for ways to use all the radishes I’ve been getting from my Chubby Bunny Farm CSA. This salad is delicious, crunchy and unexpected. It could make a radish lover out of anyone.  Ricotta salata is a cheese made from sheep’s milk that is salted and pressed. It is sort of like an Italian-style feta cheese.
