Today marks day one of transition for our Spring Cleanse, so in honor of this time of renewal and growth, and all our current cleansers, I’ve tossed together one of my all-time favorite recipes.
Cucumber Radish Salad!
Nothing says spring to me quite like radishes do. They’re always the first to pop up in our garden at home, signaling the tasty beginning of the bountiful harvest ahead.
Radishes could be the perfect Spring Cleanse food. Known for cleansing the liver, radishes help improve digestion and prevent constipation. Radishes are also a great source of vitamin C, fiber and potassium.
Enjoy this crunchy, creamy salad chilled on a hot afternoon. It’s hydrating, fresh and delicious!
What’s on your Spring Cleanse menu? I’d love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment below.
With love and spicy radishes,
Cucumber Radish Salad
Yield: 2 Servings
- 2 cups cucumber, skins on, diced
- 1 cup radish, diced
- 1 avocado, diced
- ¼ cup fresh herb of choice (cilantro, dill, mint or parsley would be delicious)

- 1 TB apple cider vinegar
- 2 TB olive oil
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
In a large bowl, toss together cucumber, radish, avocado, herbs, lime juice, vinegar, olive oil until well combined. Avocado should become creamy but still chunky. Add salt and pepper to taste. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes before serving.
