I made this salad for a potluck last week. It’s very refreshing for the summer! The cucumbers are juicy, the radishes are spicy, and the green apples are tart and sweet.
1. Start by thinly slicing 1/2 an English cucumber, 1 green apple, and a handful of radishes. I used a mandolin slicer, but a food processor would get the job done faster.
2. Combine in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine 1 tbs honey, 1 tbs olive oil, and 2 tbs lime juice. Mix with 1/4 cup fresh chopped mint. Toss the salad with dressing and enjoy!
Today I tried to recreate the salad using a different dressing for my sugar detox. Unfortunately, the white wine vinegar, mustard, and garlic called for in my dressing recipe ruined the beautiful flavor of this salad. I’d recommend sticking to the honey, lime, and mint combo!

This looks wonderful! Could it be made a day ahead and kept covered in the refrigerator, do you think?
Unfortunately, it doesn’t keep very well as the recipe is written. The moisture seeps out of the sliced cucumbers fairly quickly. I think that the apples and radishes would keep well with lemon juice overnight, but add the cucumbers at the last minute. Thanks for your question!

Liked this salad so much I made it two days running. So simple and delish!! Bonus that my mint patch just started popping :)
Approx how many does it serve.
Please don’t tell anyone. I made this for dinner and taste tested it. It didn’t make it to the dinner table. I ate it all and didn’t share it with anyone. I am so bad…and I don’t care.
