Polish Spring Salad or Salatka Wiosenna

This recipe for Polish spring salad or salatka wiosenna uses the bounty of springtime -- radishes, green onions, pencil-thin asparagus, peas. Poles like to chop their veggies finely and add hard-cooked eggs to their salads, and then dust them with the ubiquitous sweet paprika for color.

With the availability of produce year-round, this salad can be served any time, and it works well with cucumbers, green peppers, and other summer vegetables. If eggs aren't your thing, substitute mild, cubed yellow cheese.
