This is very refreshing, and great for a hot day. Fresh cucumbers and radishes out of the garden, can't ask for anything better.

This is a Good One! I'm curretly up to m ears n cukes from my garden and there are only so many ways to prepare them. Used my garden radishes as well. I actually doubled the dressing recipe. When the smoke cleared.......there was none left. I'll be making this one again for dinner tonight. Thanks!
