  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced radish
  • 1/4 cup thinly vertically sliced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 medium ripe avocado, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped

1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl; sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Toss gently to coat.

2. Melt butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and sausage to pan; cook 3 minutes or until sausage is browned, stirring to crumble.
