Radish & Cucumber Salad

Local, Nourish, recipes, Salad

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.

Instructions:
  1. Peel the radish and cucumber, then keep peeling it until you have all thin strips.
  2. 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.
  3. Add vinegar and calamansi and mix everything together.
  4. 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,
