I think I have just found my go-to salad for the summer!!! I just love these gorgeous thin radish and cucumber slices, and I don't know why, but they just taste better sliced uber thin like this. I love the way the light hits each slice and brightens it up, it's just beautiful, like each slice is in the spotlight.
I have totally been on a radish kick this spring. I love the earthy taste and the fiery little kick in each bite. I love the bright white centre with it's fine red border. I have been tossing these little gems in salads, on sandwiches and wraps, and even in black bean tacos with red radish slaw all spring. They are definitely continuing into my summer obsession too!
So I can't help but love this gorgeous cucumber and radish salad with its delicate papery thin slices. This salad looks classic and sophisticated yet it's so simple and you can make it in a snap. The only tricky part may be getting the slices nice and thin!
I think this salad is a perfect choice for special events. I would confidently serve this salad at wedding shower or dinner party or at a family brunch. It's paired with a light creamy honey dressing, no strong flavours are needed to compete with the radishes! The honey is mild and adds a slight sweetness while the vinegar brightens it up. I'm sure it will be a crowd pleaser. Yup, this is going to be my go-to side salad this summer!
