FIG POPPYSEED SALAD WITH RADISHES

Paleo fig salad dressing

I've made this salad before, and I posted it a long time ago. However, like many things, practice makes perfect. While I did not change the recipe for the dressing, I found that the less you add on top, the better. Radishes are the perfect crunchy topping to this salad. You don't need another thing. I hope you enjoy the new photos, too.
