Italian Aperitivo Board with Radish

The radish is a favourite in many Italian recipes and food markets thanks to its crisp texture and peppery flavour. In this recipe the sweetness of the preserved meats compliments the freshness of the radishes, with the olives, adding salty notes and the cheese and avocado adding creaminess to this tasty snacking platter.
