Although this Radish, Cucumber & Egg Salad screams summer I decided to make it in the middle of January. I went to my local farmer’s market a couple of days ago and saw these cute little bunches of fresh and crisp radish at only 68c per bunch. I immediately grabbed 4. Should have taken a photo with my iPhone.
This salad is really good and very easy to make. Only 5 ingredients and you are done. This salad brings out the best memories from my childhood. Hot summer days, nice breeze coming in through the kitchen door and us having this salad with mashed potatoes or pasta. I had it today with a little bit of whole wheat spaghetti and right away had a flashback into my childhood. Isn’t it amazing how food brings back memories?!
I had to say it today. I love the simplicity of this recipe. I could have added some mustard, mayo or soy sauce, but I decided to keep it original. The only thing I changed is Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Nothing I can do about that. I have a special relationship with 0% Plain Greek yogurt.:)
Anyways, I like food simple and healthy. I see a lot of creative and very unique recipes on the Internet, but I always end up not having all of the ingredients on the long list. And I need to cook tonight, like within next couple hours. I’m busy, we all are busy. We all have hungry kids who want to eat. At least in my house it’s the way it is – I live in the kitchen! And by the way, my 6 and 2 year old ate this salad to the last bit tonight.
So here is to simple and healthy food made easy. Enjoy!
- 2 bunches or 2 cups radishes, thinly sliced
- 1/2 long English cucumber, seeded & chopped in large pieces
- 3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
- 2 scallions, chopped
- 1/2 cup 0% Greek yogurt, plain
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Add all ingredients to the salad bowl and mix to combine.
- This is how I cut my ingredients.
