I got my CSA basket yesterday and it was filled with great stuff. The farm emails be a list of the contents of the basket with some recipe ideas as well. Very helpful. So this is the salad I made last night. Dave and I both loved it. For dessert we had strawberry shortcake. Yum!
Radish, Cucumber, Apple Salad
6—8 small – medium radishes
1/4 c Cider/Sherry/White Wine Vinegar
Wash and destem all the radishes and cut off any stringy beards, cut each radish in half. Cut the radishes into thin slices and place in a salad bowl. Cut each cucumber in half and then slice into thin slices and place into the same bowl. Peel the apple, cut into quarters, and remove the core. Cut into thin slices and put into the same bowl.
Drizzle the entire mix with some vinegar of your choice so that all the items are coated. Then, sprinkle with a generous amount of sugar and just a pinch of salt so the sweet and sour is balanced.
This salad should hold for quite a while and will not lose it’s crispness but put it under plastic wrap or wax paper as the apples may brown, even with the acid.
I only used 1 cucumber, 4 radishes and 1 apple with a combo of cider and white wine vinegar. It came out great and was the right amount for a very generous serving for 2 people.
