FILL a medium-sized pan with water and salt and bring to a boil. COOK the pasta until they're al dente and DRAIN the pasta. RINSE them with cold running water until they're completely cooled off.
Meanwhile CREATE the basil pesto. PEEL the garlic cloves and add them to the blender along with the basil leaves, pine nuts, juice of half a lemon and large splash of olive oil.
BLEND until smooth and keep on adding olive oil until you've reached the desired consistency.
RINSE the bell pepper, remove the seeds and chop into cubes. RINSE the cucumber and chop into pieces, any kind you like. SLICE the black olives into slices and combine them along with the pepper, cucumber and pasta.
RINSE the radishes and slice into slices. ADD the radishes and basil pesto to the pasta and combine well. SEASON with pepper and salt if needed, enjoy!
