cucumber and radish salad with ginger miso dressing

cucumber and radish

After years of lusting after the dressing served on the small salads at various Hibachi grills and sushi restaurants, I think I’ve finally got it!  The combination of cucumber and radish in this salad is crunchy, ridiculously refreshing, and packs well in a picnic.

2 Tbsp water

2-3 cucumbers, sliced thin (peeled or not according to preference)

In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the dressing.  Serve alongside salad.  Refrigerate unused dressing.

  2. Tis’ the summer season! I made a cucumber & radish salad today! I wish I found your blog sooner. Your salad looks so refreshing! Have you tried cooking radishes before? I took some leftover ones and created an impromptu kale, shitake, & radish fried rice. It was delicious! Such a great alternative to the water chestnut.
