Asian Inspired Radish, Cucumber and Celery Salad

Today’s Asian inspired radish, cucumber and celery salad is just fitting for the hot temperatures we’ve been experiencing here in NYC.  It is a truly light and refreshing salad that can easily be served for lunch.  

You will notice that my recent recipes have radishes.  That’s because I have so many radishes on hand. I can’t complain because radishes on their own are very healthy and good for you.  

They belong to the cruciferous vegetable family similar to kale, broccoli, cauliflower and kholrabi, just to name a few.  

Radishes as a cruciferous vegetable is high in folic acid and fiber.  It is also high in vitamins A, C, and K.  So how can you pass on using such a nutrient dense vegetable in your meals and salads? 🙂

The high water content of the vegetables leaves you feeling refreshed and satisfied.  Served with this delicious Asian inspired dressing it is sure to please.  The mildly sweet and tangy dressing goes well with the crisp crunchy vegetables.  

The vegetables can stay marinating in the dressing for at least a day or two, any longer and they will become soggy.

This simple salad and dressing is so easy to put together.   You start by washing and drying your vegetables.  Slice the radishes.  You can choose to slice them thin or thick.  I personally prefer thin slices.  

Next dice the cucumbers into bite sized pieces and cut the celery stalks into small cubes. In a medium bowl, add the radishes, cucumbers and celery and set them aside.

In a small bowl, add the ingredients for the dressing and briskly whisk together.  Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to combine.  Refrigerate for at least an hour or until ready to serve.

Your salad is now ready to be served.  Enjoy alone or with your favorite crusty bread, or with a protein side.

Feel free to share your comments.  I look forward to hearing from you.
