I love to serve this dish when we cook on the grill in the summertime. It's so refreshing on hot days. This was printed in a cookbooklet that I received in one of our swaps.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel the cucumbers, halve lengthwise and scrape out the seeds.
  2. Thinly slice the cucumbers on the diagonal.
  3. Combine the cucumbers and radishes in a colander; toss together with the sea salt.
  4. Top the vegetables with a plate that will fit inside the colander and weight the plate with a heavy item to help the veggies drain.
  5. Drain the vegetables in the sink for about 20 minutes, squeeze them between paper towels to dry, then transfer to a bowl.
  6. Combine the red onion, cider vinegar, olive oil and sugar.
  7. Pour over the cucumber and radishes; toss to combine.
  8. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste and serve immediately.

Delightful, refreshing, healthy raw food dish!! Next time, though, I need to take the time to let the vegetables drain and toss them in my salad spinner. This will be a regular this Summer Dreamgoddess, thank you!

Everything in it to love! I used the salad spinner after draining in the sink. I made the dressing, delicious and my hubby put miracle whip on his anyway. He had the COMBO!I will make again and again! Thanks for posting.
