Radishes, cucumber and asparagus are just a few of the spring veggies that star in this salad, but it's the chipotle and paprika-spiced dressing that really steals the show. Not only is this gorgeous salad loaded with 2 of your 5 a day and low in salt and saturates, but it's also suitable for vegan and gluten-free diets - meaning this is one recipe you'll definitely want to keep on file for barbecue season.
