Cucumber and Radish Salad


I was looking forward to summer all winter long.  Now that it's finally here, it's really hot, but it's still better than freezing in the winter! 

Cooling salads are definitely on the menu on hot weather days.  I like to serve this cucumber and radish salad as a side dish along side any meal... especially a spicy curry meal.  

This salad is truly simple and fresh.  I love the spicy bite the radishes give the cool cucumbers.  A salad just isn't a salad without a lot of sliced red onions in my book.  So I added a bunch and they completed this salad perfectly.

So, if you are having a hot summer... make a salad and cool off.

1 large English cucumber sliced thin
3-4 large radishes sliced thin (I used a mandoline slicer)
1 large red onion sliced

1/4 cup light or regular mayonnaise
1 Tbs rice wine vinegar
1 tsp sugar
salt and black pepper to taste

Wash and slice the cucumber, radish and onion.  I used a mandoline slicer on the cucumbers and radishes to get really thin slices. 

Add the dressing ingredients directly into salad bowl.  Then add the cucumber, radish and onion and toss well.  Served immediately or chill in fridge before serving.  Enjoy.
