Both bright from lime juice and buttery from diced avocado, this salad from Lorena Herrera nicely balances any menu with spicy, smoky, braised or slow-roasted flavors.Slideshow:More Avocado Salad Recipes
20 radishes, thinly sliced
1 small red onion, thinly sliced (1 cup)
1 jalapeño, thinly sliced
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
Flaky sea salt
3 ripe Hass avocados—peeled, pitted and sliced
1 cup cilantro leaves
1/2 cup torn basil leaves
How to Make It
In a medium bowl, combine the radishes with the onion, jalapeño, lime juice and the 1 tablespoon of olive oil and toss to coat. Season with salt. Arrange the avocados on a platter, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt. Spoon the radish salad on top, strew with the cilantro and basil and serve as soon as possible.
The ingredients can all be prepped up to 4 hours ahead, but toss the radish mixture with the lime juice and olive oil and then assemble the salad just before serving or the radishes will get soggy.

Review Body: This is just about the prettiest salad you can make! Perfect when fresh spring radishes are in season. I made mine ahead of time and took it to work for lunch. Contrary to what the recipes says, it help up just fine sitting around for several hours.
