Most people don’t like radish, I mean I didn’t like it before, so I understand.
Last year though when I first went to Davao, I stayed with some really awesome people and tried a radish salad for the first time. It was a bit different from this one, but that was the salad that allowed me to not hate radish. I also love how simple and easy it looked. So this year when I came back to Davao I decided to make a radish salad of my own. It’s different, but it’s incredibly simple and easy to make.
I think the secret is in how thinly one cut it, I mean it really could be. I’ve only liked it when it was cut really thinly and massaging it with a bit of sea salt also helps. It helps soften the radish which I think makes a huge difference.
Are you ready? Let’s get started!
Radish & Cucumber Salad
Serves 1 Salad Monster
- 1 Large Radish
- 4 Cucumber
- 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
- 3 Tbs Pinakurat
- 2-3 Tbs Calamansi Juice
- Peel the radish and cucumber, then keep peeling it until you have all thin strips.
- Add the salt and massage the radish and cucumber until they are soft, there will be some water that will come out of the radish and cucumber, so strain that.
- Add vinegar and calamansi and mix everything together.
- Serve and Enjoy!
Pretty easy, right? I have to say that radish is definitely an acquired taste, so try it first. I seem to only like it served this way for now, but maybe in the future I’ll like it in a different way as well, let’s just wait and see!
Peace and love,
