Sweet & Tangy Cucumber Radish Salad

March 8, 2023
Cucumbers and radishes are one of the most compatible pairs of fruit and veggies. Cucumbers are filled with a high amount of water, while radishes have a peppery spice to them. When tossed together into a salad, the spice is played down, and it makes for a refreshing and cooling side. This is almost completely raw and and will add a vibrant flavor to whatever you decide to eat it with. I simply enjoyed mine with a green salad and some rice.

Cucumbers and radishes are two of the easiest crops to grow in the garden, and I will use this recipe again when it comes time to pick them. I used an English cucumber in this recipe because I prefer their crunch, but you can use whatever is available to you. Feel free to add in vegan feta cheese, sliced almonds, or whatever other toppings you would like.
