Today marks day one of transition for our Spring Cleanse, so in honor of this time of renewal and growth, and all our current cleansers, I’ve tossed together one of my all-time favorite recipes.
Cucumber Radish Salad!
Nothing says spring to me quite like radishes do. They’re always the first to pop up in our garden at home, signaling the tasty beginning of the bountiful harvest ahead.
Radishes could be the perfect Spring Cleanse food. Known for cleansing the liver, radishes help improve digestion and prevent constipation. Radishes are also a great source of vitamin C, fiber and potassium.
Enjoy this crunchy, creamy salad chilled on a hot afternoon. It’s hydrating, fresh and delicious!
What’s on your Spring Cleanse menu? I’d love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment below.
With love and spicy radishes,
Cucumber Radish Salad
Yield: 2 Servings
- 2 cups cucumber, skins on, diced
- 1 cup radish, diced
- 1 avocado, diced
- ¼ cup fresh herb of choice (cilantro, dill, mint or parsley would be delicious)
- 2 TB lime or lemon juice
- 1 TB apple cider vinegar
- 2 TB olive oil
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
In a large bowl, toss together cucumber, radish, avocado, herbs, lime juice, vinegar, olive oil until well combined. Avocado should become creamy but still chunky. Add salt and pepper to taste. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes before serving.
This sounds yummy. I love radishes also. I can see this dish becoming a springtime staple for me.
Yay. So glad to hear it!
I found your website on my yoga down load account. I have not signed up for a cleanse session but I have downloaded your book and I am hooked. I receive many cooking periodicals but yours is the one I continually refer to. I love your recipes!! So fresh and delicious!! I’m glad you post new recipes as a update to the recipes in your book!! I was never a green drinker before reading your book, and now I look forward to it everyday!! Your psychology makes sense and is very easy to follow!! Made your cucumber radish salad with your turkey spinach burgers for dinner tonight. Delish!!
Oh that is so great to hear, Sue! Thanks so much. Enjoy it. xo, Jules
So good!! I was out of lemons so used a lemon olive oil and extra vinegar. Also added chickpeas for some extra protein. Winner. Thanks!
Yay! So glad to hear it. I love the idea of adding chickpeas too. Good one!
Julie, I love your recipe pages, they are bright beautiful and vibrant… my new favorite is the radish salad!
I was wondering tho, I see you can tweet it, pin it etc… but is there also an icon to print it?
I like to add these to my cookbooks. Thanks, pam
Thank you Pam! Glad you’re enjoying the recipes. :) We are working on a ‘Print’ function in the next phase of our new website. Thanks for the note.
Recipe sounds amazing! I’m allergic to cucumbers… what would you recommend as a replacement?
How about jicama?
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.
Hi Chris, Yay! We’re so glad you’re trying it, especially with ingredients fresh from your garden. YUM! Let us know what you think.
