Radishes Are A Superfood!

Ingredients for Cucumber Radish Salad:
There are literally 3 ingredients in this radish salad and 2 ingredients in the dressing (including salt!) I know what you’re thinking; WOAH – that can’t be all?! My Mother has been making this recipe since I was a child and sometimes a classic recipe doesn’t need any improvement.
Cook’s Tip: Stir the sour cream dressing into the salad just before serving. The longer it sits, the more liquid the dressing becomes as the salt causes the cucumber to release some juice. But I guarantee you’ll use a spoon to gather any extra juice left behind. It’s so yummy!
