Most people think of Sage as that taste you save for Thanksgiving but Sage is Forking delicious in salads too! This salad is very light, has texture to it and is full of flavor. The peppery common Red Radishes go really well with the watermelon and dressing. For BEST results eat right away. The more the watermelon sits in the salad the texture and taste disappear.
