Cucumber Radish Salad

We’re down to the last few days of summer, so we’re embracing refreshing salads while we can. That’s where one of our favorite cooling recipes comes in: this crisp Cucumber Radish Salad.

With our September cleanse in its first full week, we’re looking at detox-friendly veggies that can help ease the body through detox. Radishes might just be the perfect cleanse food. They’re known for cleansing the liver, improving digestion, and preventing constipation. And they’re also a great source of vitamin C, fiber, and potassium!

Cucumber is a classic addition to any salad when you’re looking for some extra crunch and hydration. Their mild flavor helps contrast the spicy bite of the radishes, and their water content is a huge bonus. Plus they have the added benefit of silica, a trace mineral that is hard to get from other foods. Silica helps with maintaining the health of your nails, hair, and connective tissue.

This salad isn’t just crunchy, it’s also super creamy. Diced avocado’s velvety texture balances out the crispy and watery cucumbers and radishes. It’s topped off with fresh herbs that add some brightness (which also brings in some added minerals and detox benefits). All in all, you end up with a well-balanced, nutritious, and satisfying salad!

Enjoy this crunchy, creamy salad chilled on a hot afternoon. It’s a fresh and delicious way to cool down and feel rejuvenated.

    Recipe sounds amazing! I’m allergic to cucumbers… what would you recommend as a replacement?

  • Chris Jones

    We pulled half of the ingredients out of our garden. This was delicious. We’re going to give this a shot. Knowing Jules from a lifetime ago I have complete faith.
