Cucumber radish salad

This cucumber radish salad is summer in a bowl. It’s so refreshing, light yet satisfying! The creamy dressing makes this salad exceptional!


  • 1 large English cucumber, Note 1
  • 1 lb radishes, Note 2
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dill leaves
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, juice of half a lemon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest, optional
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder


  • Wash and dry the cucumber and thinly slice it. (Note: English cucumber has a thin peel, so no need to peel.)
  • Radishes are usually very muddy, so scrub wash them thoroughly and dry them with a paper towel. Trim the top and the bottom and thinly slice them too.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine sour cream, dill, salt and pepper, lemon juice, lemon zest, if using, and garlic powder. Whisk everything well until smooth and creamy.
  • Place the sliced cucumber and radishes in a large mixing bowl and add the dressing. Mix well. Serve immediately.


Note 1: This recipe uses English cucumber. But you can use regular cucumber too, but make sure to peel it as regular cucumber peel is thicker than English cucumber. You'd need about 2 cups of sliced cucumbers.
Note 2: You'd need about 2 cups of sliced radishes.
