Oh my gosh! Never use the mandoline while you’re NOT thinking about the fact that there’s a sharp blade 2 milli-inches from your index finger.

There I was, in the kitchen, doing my salad-thing, thinking about my next TJ Maxx splurge – I like to keep it classy… – when BAM! The mandoline decided to have its way with me! Lawwwd, that hurt! It’s like a paper cut, but not. It’s like a MILLION times worse!

My husband threatened to pitch out the mandoline because I have yet to use that thing without hurting myself.  Then I threatened that without the mandoline, I would never make his favorite Radish and Cucumber Salad, again. Seconds later, that mean little tool found its way back on the kitchen counter.

SO, it’s Friday! Have you clocked out, yet? Mentally, I’m sorta always clocked out. Which is the reason my fingers are all wrapped up now…

Anywhoooo….

I’m fairly certain that we’re approaching the time of year when it’s reasonable to eat salads thrice a day. (Think beach-bod!)

When my husband and I first got married, I would always make my favorite Simple Cucumber Salad, and without even mentioning it, I’d see him slicing up a few radishes into his bowl. I’ve never met anyone else that can eat a radish with so much joy! He LOVES ’em!! I can’t even taste them! Do they have a taste?

Well, soon thereafter, and all the while to make myself happy with some variety, I started to add the radishes to our cucumber salad, but not without a good dose of garlic-yogurt dressing. Garlic is always the answer. ALWAYS.

This salad is simple, refreshing, easy to make, and a celebration of summer-food.

Besides, there are short dresses and sandals in our very near future…like, this weekend. Lawd help me.

ENJOY!

    I loved the idea of this recipe and all the ingredients, but it was just bland in the end. I added more garlic, dill, parmesan, but it’s still really missing something and I can’t put my finger on it.

    I made this salad yesterday. Loved it! I’ve been married for a year and I’m trying to add new side dishes to our rotation. This is definitely a keeper. The only thing is that the recipe calls for too much salt – the dressing was too salty so I added more yogurt to fix it. I definitely suggest adding the salt and pepper to taste. Also, I prepared the salad and put it in the fridge for about an hour. By the time we ate it, the dressing had become very runny (maybe because of the cucumber’s juices?). Thanks for the recipe!

      Hi Gabriela!! So happy to hear you enjoyed the salad!! That should be 1/4-teaspoon salt… my mistake! Thanks so much for pointing it out!! “To taste” may be the better way to go. 🙂

      Yes, the cucumber juices will definitely make it runny. I always take it out of the fridge after 10 to 15 minutes.

      I always salt my cucumber slices in a strainer for about a half hour then pat dry pulls alot of moisture out good for any cucumber salad crunchy and yummy

    Love this salad. So sorry about your digit. I’ve done it myself, stings like mad. Luckily you had this gorgeous salad to soften the blow of your injury.

    Ohhh dang – I hope you’re healing up! Mandolines always make me nervous for that same reason!
    But this salad looks worth the pain. B-E-A-utiful!
