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!

The radishes and fresh dill really give this cucumber salad a great new twist. Cool and refreshing when it is hot out. Thanks so much for the post.
