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!
