We have already shared some great summer salads and BBQ recipes with you, but in my opinion you can never have too many salad recipes because it is a great way to keep you on the healthy eating track.

Today’s salad is very much a side, rather than a full meal in itself. But it is quick and easy to whip up, and lasts well thanks to the dressing.

It’s another one taken from the fantastic Detox Bible!

METHOD

Peel the cucumbers, then slice very finely. (Use a mandoline if you have one as you want the slices to be as thin as possible.) Alternatively, you can cut the cucumber lengthways in half and scoop out the seeds before slicing into thin half-moons. Place in a bowl.

Trim off the long root from each radish, then thinly slice them (again, use a mandoline if you have one). Add these to the cucumber.

Mix together the lemon juice, honey, dill, chives and some salt and pepper in a small bowl. Add this dressing to the cucumber and radishes and mix well.

Cover the salad with clingfilm and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes. Drain off the excess liquid before serving.

Serve alongside chicken, or as part of a salad lunch box pack up.

p.s. if radishes aren’t your thing, one of my favourite salad sides – that I can remember my Granny doing when I was younger – is just to slice up a bit of cucumber and put it in vinegar with a little bit of brown sugar. I have since noticed Nigella is a fan of the old favourite too and she throws in a bit of dill as well, which works really well and is very similar to this tasty and healthy treat!
