From Food52. The pea shoots, arugula and radishes were courtesy of our local farmers' market. If you cannot find French radishes, they can be substituted with young spring turnips. You are more than welcomed to adjust the oil to vinegar ratio (I did). A very simple seasonal spring salad. Keyword: simplicity
