Shaved Cucumber Radish Salad

I needed a simple, clean salad for a scallop dish I made.  I didn’t want my salad to over power the taste of the scallops so I went with a  basic salad dressing on shaved radishes and cucumbers.  It is such a simple dish but the peppery radishes compliment the cool cucumbers so well.  It is so simple and easy to make a five star meal at home sometimes.

Ingredients for Salad Dressing:

  • 1 English Cucumber
  • 8-10 radishes, ends trimmed
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • mix all together, so simple and fresh

When I eat salads I use this recipe all the time, I don’t like heavy dressings, I like things to taste clean and fresh.  Sometimes I will add balsamic vinegar but a lot of the time it is just olive oil and lemon juice.  To get the radishes and cucumbers thin, use a mandolin.  It makes slicing so much faster.
