Cucumber And Radish Salad

  1 rater(s)

When it comes to cooking (or not cooking in the case of raw veganism), the best approach is to let the ingredients shine. Simple recipes are often the best, using seasonal ingredients whenever possible. Using seasonal produce is the most flavorful way to cook, but sometimes you have to purchase out of season items. Fortunately for you, both radishes and cucumbers are summer produce items, meaning this salad is brimming with freshness.

We do have to say that the best way to make this salad is to cut both the radishes and the cucumbers with a mandoline. Please use a guard so that you do not slice your fingers. You can use a knife to thinly slice the ingredients, but this will be very labor-intensive. The mandoline slicer speeds things up and makes it so all of the slices are the same. Slicing the ingredients extra thin, especially the radishes, means that you won’t get a super peppery bite by eating a thick radish slice.

Both cucumbers and radishes provide lovely texture and refreshing flavors, but the real star of this recipe is the dill dressing. It has a strong dill flavor because of the fresh dill, and that pairs beautifully with the lemon juice and mustard powder. If the flavor of the dressing is too intense for you, drizzle in some raw agave nectar to bring some sweetness to the party. Taste and then dress your salad!
