Jan wants to go to a movie for Mother’s Day, Avengers: Age of Ultron. For me this means making dishes that I can prep ahead. To go with my steamed mussels, I decided that a rice salad would be nice.

I am making crab cakes and in looking for recipes, I found one that included shredded radishes as a garnish. The white strips with red tips produced a very pretty effect. Another recipe included Champaigne coleslaw. Since I had already decided on using an herb salad as the base of my dish, I decided to combine these two ideas as a garnish and make lightly pickled radish shreds.
