Cucumber and Radish Salad with Fresh Dill

This cucumber and radish salad is the perfect summer garden fresh salad. If you aren’t in the mood for a leafy green salad but want something fresh and healthy, this is a great recipe to try. If you like dill like me, go nuts with it! Everything can be grown in your very own garden and can be on the table in minutes. Fresh, crisp and easy to make, so, I hope you give it a go, enjoy!
