Cucumber Radish Apple Salad

Radishes were always a food I put in the “I don’t like them” category.  They had too sharp of a taste for my liking, so I avoided them altogether.  This arrangement worked quite well for me until I read about the amazing health benefits that radishes provide in Anthony William’s book:  Life-Changing Foods.  It was then that I knew I needed to find a way to include them in my diet.

It was my sister who found this recipe and sent it my way.  I was skeptical, but willing to give it a try.  I was hoping it was just okay, as I didn’t think I could expect any more than that when 1/3 of the salad contained an ingredient I didn’t like.  Much to my surprise…I loved it!!  The sweetness of the honey offsets the bitterness of the radish.  And the fresh mint adds a powerful flavor overlay to the whole dish which makes this salad rank as one of my current favorites.

It is quick to prepare, which is a bonus for a busy family.  Leftovers are equally tasty as the three main ingredients retain their crunchiness even after a day of soaking in the dressing.

I only have two revisions to the recipe:  First, I just sliced the ingredients with my favorite paring knife.  The recipe calls for a mandolin slicer (which I don’t have), or a food processor (but I decided I wanted to avoid the extra clean-up).  A food processor might be a better choice if you were making a large batch for a bigger group.  Otherwise, the paring knife works just fine.  Second, I added an entire bunch of fresh mint.  I am crazy about fresh herbs.  The more, the better in my world!

I also learned in that book that the radish greens on top of the red bulbs, are another super-food.  Some people chop them up in their salads, but that doesn’t work for my taste buds.  So I add a few of the greens into my morning fruit smoothie so that I can reap the benefits while disguising the taste.

This is a great staple to include in your meal rotations and makes a great dish for summer potlucks.

  4. He Makes Money Online WITHOUT Traffic?

    Most people believe that you need traffic to profit online…
    And for the most part, they’re right!
    Fact is.. 99.99% of methods require you to have traffic.
    And that in itself is the problem..
    Because frankly, getting traffic is a pain in the rear!
    Don’t you agree?
    That’s why I was excited when a good friend told me that he was profiting, but with ZERO traffic.
    I didn’t believe him at first…
    But after he showed me the proof, it’s certainly the real deal!
    I’m curious what your thoughts are.
