  • 1 large cucumber
  • 100 g radishes
  • 1 small red onion
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup parsley
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper


  • Add olive oil If you are making your salad quite in advance, I recommend that you remove the excess water from the cucumbers. Salt the quartered cucumbers, place on top of a colander with a container below. Let it aside for about 30 minutes, but not more than 3 hours. Pat dry with a towel.
  • In a large bowl add the quartered cucumbers, sliced radish, chopped red onion and fresh parsley. Mix and set aside.
  • In a small bowl mix together, the olive oil, lemon juice, white vinegar and sugar. Drizzle it over the mixed salad and combine well.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste. Let it rest for about 15 minutes before serving. Mix well again to redistribute the salad and serve!
  • Place any leftovers in the fridge. Enjoy!
