This crisp, refreshing salad is a perfect accompaniment to grilled meats. Don't have radishes? That's ok, leave 'em out. Have some crispy head lettuce kicking around, or a tomato? Throw 'em in! 

  • 1 slicing cucumber
  • 1 bunch radishes
  • 1 bulb shallot (most shallots start out with two bulbs)
  • 3/4 cup plain, whole-milk yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon walnut oil or olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill (or 1 teaspoon fresh dill)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Cut the cucumbers in half lengthwise, and slice into half moons.
  2. Cut the radishes in half, and cut each half into slices. 
  3. Mince the shallot
  4. In a medium-sized bowl, toss the cucumbers, radishes, and shallot with the remaining ingredients.
  5. Let stand for a few minutes so the dill can begin to rehydrate. 
  6. Taste the salad. Does it need more salt, pepper, acidity, or fat? If so, adjust the seasonings.
