If you are a fan of Surviving The Stores on Facebook then you probably saw that I was asking about radish recipes the other day. I got two packages of radishes with my produce co-op items last week (more info to come on produce co-ops!) and I had NO CLUE what to do with them.
I got some great feedback from Facebook and Twitter and decided to make a Cucumber Radish salad with Buttermilk. I had a carton of buttermilk in the fridge from the scones that I made this past week and it always ends up going bad so I needed to find something to do with it.
We all love LOVE Mediterranean food, so this recipe was perfect for us. This was my lunch today, but you can have it by itself or as a side dish along with grilled chicken, fish, or your favorite mediterranean dish.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 large Cucumber quartered and diced
4-5 Radishes sliced thin
1 cup of Buttermilk
Salt and Pepper
Sliced Onions or Onion Powder (we were out of onions so I just used the powder)
Minced Garlic (I put about a teaspoon)
Fresh or dried dill (I didn’t have any dill, but I DID have dill pickle relish! I thought it tasted great!)
1-2 tsp. of white vinegar, unless you are using the dill pickle relish b/c it already has vinegar in it
Here’s what you do:
Mix all of the ingredients. Chill in the fridge for at least an hour. And enjoy! So easy, so good for you, and SO GOOD!
