Radish and Cucumber Salad with Herbs and Goat Cheese

This radish and cucumber salad is a perfect early Spring or Summer salad when you get your first batch of radishes. I used goat cheese here, but you could easily swap in Feta. There are no hard and fast rules for herbs either – use what you have on hand. I like dill, chives, basil, cilantro, mint, or parsley – all would work fine. There are endless possibilities, so get creative and enjoy!
