Recipe of the Week – Radish & Cucumber Salad

Summer vegetable harvest has begun!  My sister gave me some beautiful radishes from her garden, and I couldn’t wait to make my first summer salad with them.  I love growing radishes since they only take a few weeks from seed to harvest.  I also love their spicy flavour and crunch!  We hope you enjoy this easy salad that can be put together in minutes!

Ingredients

3-6 Radishes
2-4 Mini cucumbers
1-2 Tbsp Fresh dill, chopped
Olive oil
Apple cider vinegar
Maple Syrup
Salt and Pepper

Directions

Using a mandolin or a knife, thinly slice the radishes and cucumbers.  Add to a bowl and add the dill.  Next, prepare the dressing.  I usually make a large batch of dressing because it stores nicely in the fridge.  Mix two parts olive oil to one part apple cider vinegar.  Add a good splash of maple syrup to sweeten it, and finish with salt and pepper to taste.  Shake it up in a jar.  Pour over the salad – just use enough to coat the radishes and cucumbers.  Toss and serve.  Enjoy!
