Cucumber Radish Salad

This salad is light and refreshing perfect for serving during those warm summer months! Peppery radishes pair perfectly with cool cucumbers and crunchy celery!

AND it’s low carb/keto for those counting the carbs.

I’m not a big fan of those cucumber salad recipes with sour cream or mayonnaise-based dressings. So this fresh lemon vinaigrette is perfect!

Ingredients Needed

  • Cucumber -English or Baby
  • Radishes
  • Celery
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh lemon
  • Fresh dill
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • Pecorino Romano cheese

English, or also known as hot-house cucumbers, are great for salad recipes because they are seedless. So more crunchy cucumber meat and less water from the seeds. English cucumbers have thinner edible skin, so you don’t have to peel them.

How to Make Cucumber Radish Salad

In a small mason jar combine the olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, fresh ground black pepper, and salt. Shake to combine and set aside for the flavors to develop.

Wash and thinly slice the vegetables. They should be about 1/4-inch in thickness. If you slice them too thin they will become limp and soggy. A mandoline works great for this but I do suggest you hand slice the radishes.

Place the celery, radishes, and cucumbers in a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle the chopped fresh dill over the top.

If you don’t have fresh dill you can use 1 teaspoon of dried dill. If you don’t like dill try replacing it with fresh mint or basil.

Drizzle the dressing over the vegetables and toss to evenly coat.

Plate and sprinkle the shredded Pecorino Romano cheese and additional salt and pepper.

This salad is best served immediately. If you need to make it in advance just slice the vegetables and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Mix the dressing and keep them separate until ready to serve.

Feel free to add some of your other favorite salad additions such as green onions, red onions, or even some crumbled feta.
