Radish, Apple and Parsnip Salad

This cooling summertime salad is a perfect compliment to any meal.  Today for lunch I prepared this radish salad atop a mixture of leftover whole grains; brown rice and quinoa.  For a fresh dinner idea, this salad also pairs well alongside grilled tempeh or tuna steak.
