My husband said this creamy Cucumber Radish Salad takes him back to his childhood in Ukraine. Radishes are very popular in European dishes and we sure love our radish recipes!

Radishes Are A Superfood!

Did you know radishes are considered a SUPER FOOD? Yes, they are so good for you; rich in Vitamin C, Folic Acid and Potassium, oh and they aid in digestion and heart health also! Read more about radish health benefits and nutrition on Dr Axe’s website.

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.

Radish recipes ingredients for cucumber radish salad

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!

One of our favorite radish recipes is this creamy cucumber radish salad.

    I haven’t tried the recipe yet but it will be on my list for the weekend. I love cucumbers and radishes both. My favorite way to eat a radish is to sprinkle a little salt on it and take a bite. Reply

    First off, this salad is so nutritious and satisfying…..I did lay it over some spring greens. …….AND, My niece introduced me to very simply— sliced radish with a slather of good soft butter as we stood around the stove at holiday. Amazing Norwegian staple. Really, it’s that easy and WOW. Reply

    I love eating radishes thinly sliced on bread with butter and topped with a sprinkling of salt. Mmmmmmm
    I also love them in my potato salad.

    We grew up eating them after they had soaked in cold water and adding a dash of salt. Reply

    June 13, 2018

    If you add 1/4 cup mayo ( I used Hellman’s ) with the sour cream, it does not get as “wet”–also, lightly salting sliced cukes and allowing them to sit for 30 minutes–then pat dry help draw a lot of moisture from them without losing needed moisture and flavor. LOVE this salad. I truly think I could have some each day. Reply

    Being born and raised in the South, radishes were only in salads. I attended a spring cocktail party and one of the passed platters was a thinly sliced radish on the top of a toasted Baquette round that had been spread with a good quality un-salted butter. A few sea salt flakes were sprinkled on top the radish.

    Love this recipe. Followed it exactly and it is delicious! Only recommendation is to add salt in quarter tsp increments. The 3/4 is too salty for me (don’t eat much salt here) so I’d be better off with a 1/4 or 1/2. Otherwise, amazing! Love Natasha’s Kitchen Recipes, I come here all the time 🙂 Reply

    Very simple to make, the flavors were great but my problem was the dressing just liquefied while chilling. I wish there was a more substantial base for the dressing. Reply

    • Natasha
      May 31, 2018

      Hi Linda, anytime salt is added to cucumbers, it will release juice so I would highly suggest not adding dressing until ready to serve. This salad is best served fresh. You could also make this salad with a vinaigrette, but it would be the same scenario of there is salt in the dressing. Reply

    Wonderful salad. I grew up on this recipe (my Mom is of Lithuanian descent). To solve the issue of the salad becoming liquidy is to salt the cucs and let them sit for awhile, drain, then continue with the recipe. I also add some pepper and a tad of lemon juice. My family continues to make this salad for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Reply

    It’s so interesting reading everyone’s comment! The ingredients are so simple, so common, yet everyone remembers it from their childhood.

    For a party couple weeks ago, I combined this & the Creamy Cucumber Tomato Salad. Without me telling him beforehand, my friend (originally from Ukraine) immediately identified that “May made the Ukrainian Salad”! & proclaimed it’s his “favorite”. 😉

    I used 50-50 of Smetana & Kefir yogurt (I cultivated my own Kefir & just drained to thicken it), & add dill instead of scallions. Reply

    Your recipe looks yummy with the radishes… Never thought of adding them to this salad. Our family salts the sliced cucumbers and leaves them sit til the juice comes out and the cukumber a are a bit wilted (1/2-3/4 of an hour). We then add the sour cream and mix it in. I find that a couple of tablespoons of vinegar added in make a tangy addition. Reply

    I love this combination. We make this often. My boys love radishes and they are 9 and 4. They will eat them with bread and nothing else! Put it in a salad and I hear no complaining only munching. 🙂 Reply

      They eat them plain? Wow that is impressive! 🙂 Reply

    This takes me back to my childhood as well! I just literally wrote up a whole post about radishes, cucumbers, and green onion salads that my mom used to make around this time of the year. Great memories and good salad!!! Reply

      That’s awesome! I’ll have to check it out 🙂 Isn’t it great how food brings back memories? Reply

  • This salad is very reminiscent of summers in Ukraine. This is a very nostalgic flavor for me. Love it! Reply

      For me too. I don’t remember it from Ukraine (too young!) but my mom made it often when I was growing up even in the US 🙂 Reply

    I need to make this salad again and I should add some cucumbers as well since this sounds like a great addition to the radishes and green onions. I also add a little bit of olive oil and some black pepper, its one of my favorite salads. Thanks for all the hard work Natasha, you are my most trusted source. Have a wonderful Easter! Reply

      That is so sweet of you to say. Thank you so much! Happy Easter to you as well! I bet it’s nice with a little olive oil and pepper 🙂 Now I’m carving this salad all over again! Reply

    My husband favorite salad! I’ve put a “healthy twist” to it (as I find myself doing to most russian dishes) and throw in chopped spinach (it’s virtually tasteless in this salad, yet adds great nutrients) and substitute plain greek yogurt for half the sour cream. Per your commenters suggestions, I’ll have to try adding eggs next time. 🙂 Reply

      I love the idea of adding spinach. Do you chop it or add the whole leaves? Reply

    I grew up on this salad except that my father would also mix in cottage cheese! Reply

      Oh that sounds yummy and even healthier! Did he still use sour cream or was is just cottage cheese? Reply

    I make this salad too and it’s just so refreshing! My mom makes a sour cream salad with just radishes & green onions. My mother-in-law makes a sour cream salad with just cucumbers. I thought – why not combine the 2 together? Tada! Out came this salad 🙂 I am jealous your son eats it – my kids will not touch radishes, but I’m hoping they’ll become wiser with age, lol. Happy Easter! Reply

      It was his first experience with radishes. I just told them they were crunchy and sweet and he took the bait! 😉 Reply

    Hi Natasha! I just love referring to your site for insperation! My hubby & I are hosting Easter at our house for the first time this year 🙂 Here’s our menu (some dishes are from your website) : pretzel jello, drunken cherry cake, pirogi w/poppy seeds, bulka, goluptsi, mashed potatoes, wafli w/condesed milk & cream cheese, smoked tri tip, teriyaki salmon, pashtet, salads & shuba. We’ll be coloring & decorating Easter eggs with our kids as well. That about sums up our Ukrainian-American feast! Oh & this radish salad looks sooo yummy, I may just add it to the menu 😉

    Thank you for taking the time to post all of your amazing recipes.

    Wishing you & yours a blessed Easter!! Reply

      Wow that sounds like a very delicious and well-thought-out menu! Can I come? 😉 What kind of bulka is it? Oh and what is pashtet? Sounds interesting! We’ll be doing eggs tomorrow too! 🙂 Thank you Alla and a happy and blessed Easter to you and your family! Reply

        It’s a sweet bulka with raisins, topped with powdered sugar/egg white icing 🙂 & Pashtet is sort of like American meatloaf. Except my mom makes it extra special by placing hard boiled eggs in the middle. So when you slice it, you get that extra surprise 🙂 Reply

          Oh I see, the bulka is like our version of paska. The pashtet sounds wonderful! Reply

      Any kind of potato or rice dish. Serve it just like you would a regular cucumber & tomato salad. I hope you love it! Reply

        We also omit the cucumber and put in hard boiled egg. We dice the eggs. I love it, with half mayo half sour cream. Reply
