Edamame and Radish Salad With Avocado

Welp... Salads aren't really my thing... They've always kind-of felt like a punishment when trying to eat healthy... But I've got to admit - this Spring weather has me craving light, fresh salads! It's wild! This recipe was a go-to for me, because even though I'm not huge on salads, I AM huge on avocado, ginger, and garlic! YUM! So much flavor in the dressing and the avocado provides some creaminess like you get from ranch... SO GOOD!
