Avocado Rings with Radish "Fireworks"
- In a medium mixing bowl stir together red radishes, daikon, lime juice, vinegar, and salt. Cover radish mixture. Chill 2 hours, if desired.
- Cut avocados crosswise around pit into 1/4- to 1/2-inch-thick rings. Gently twist off each ring. Carefully remove and discard peel from each ring. Discard pit.
- If using serrano peppers, split peppers lengthwise. Remove and discard stem and seeds. Cut peppers into matchstick-size strips. Finely mince several of the matchsticks. Set peppers aside.
- To serve, stack 3 or 4 avocado rings on each of 4 chilled salad plates. Fill the center of each avocado stack with a spray of radish slaw and serrano pepper matchsticks, if desired. Drizzle with any remaining dressing. Sprinkle plate with minced serrano pepper, if desired. Makes 4 side-dish servings.
