Cucumber Radish Salad

Cucumber Radish Salad

Our garden is staring to give us some great vegetables right now and the first things coming up are radishes. I love the peppery taste to radishes and these home-grown radishes have that taste. So I planted more than I probably should have so I needed to come up with some ideas with how to enjoy them. That then got me thinking back to Florida and the years I worked on my uncle’s farm and ranch. I remember carrying around a saltshaker in my back pocket because we grew cucumbers. I would grab a cucumber right off the plant and sprinkle a little salt on it and the taste was amazing. I could have eaten them all day long.

Well, my cucumbers are not ready yet but that got me thinking about a recipe my mother would make with cucumbers, red onions, mayo and vinegar. What about adjusting her recipe using the radishes? I know she doesn’t read my blogs so I should be OK adjusting her recipe to suit me. And that is what brings us here… cucumber radish salad. It is the perfect side dish/salad on a hot summer day. Which, in Florida was 355 days. Enjoy!
