Creamy Radish Cucumber Salad (Dairy Free)- Perfect for a radish bumper crop!

My latest recipe, Creamy Radish Cucumber Garden Salad, comes straight from my Steamboat Springs garden. Inspired by my bumper crop of radishes, this creamy salad is so refreshing and dairy free! Perfect for your next dinner, gathering or picnic, you will enjoy the simplicity of the 6 simple ingredients and how tasty it is as a side dish to accompany your favorite meal. 

Radishes are a favorite of mine for many reasons, but mostly for its crispy crunch it adds to our daily salads and even to my sandwiches. This stand-alone salad not only has been on repeat all summer, the leftovers also have garnished my dinner or lunch salads as a wonderful complement! I also love paring this creamy radish cucumber salad with any salmon or chicken recipes too! It’s perfect to keep in the fridge for a grab and add to any meal.

Another important reason I love eating radishes, is for their amazing nutritional and detoxifying benefit! IF you enjoy drinking a cocktail, make radishes your best friend. Radishes help our liver detoxify! And not just excess fun, food and spirits, they help to maintain a well-loved and healthy liver ☺.  Radishes contain a special compound that actually helps the liver detoxify. Radishes also contain one of my personal favorite antioxidants, anthocyanins. Anthocyanin is something I make sure I eat daily as it also helps my body process glutathione our master detoxifying compound in our bodies. 

Am I geeking out here too much, perhaps… however, these are really important benefits to know about from the foods that help protect us in this day and age of constant bombardment of chemical and environmental toxins. We need glutathione to help us as we also need our liver to function at its best to help us rid the ever-growing accumulation our body has to deal with…Curious about detoxifying your body?

More great reasons to eat radishes: 

Add Radishes into your daily meals for these important reasons.

  • Radishes are high in potassium which can help lower blood pressure
  • Contains Vitamin C which helps maintain a healthy immune system and regulates our metabolism 
  • Helps keep our digestive system moving with its high fiber and roughage contents
  • Besides anthocyanins radishes also contain flavonoids that help keep our heart healthy.
  • With its high water content, it’s considered a hydrating food! We all know keeping hydrated is important for maintaining healthy kidneys, skin, weight and brain function.
  • Radishes contain an enzyme that acts as an anti-fungal and helps kill common funguses such as candida that can causes yeast infections!
  • Radishes as I mentioned above are masterful detoxifiers and part of the ever-important cancer prevention food group, cruciferous family. These foods are known to help rid and prevent cancer development. 

Radishes are the super star of this new recipe, but I’ve included other beneficial ingredients such as cucumber, another hydrating food source. But if cucumbers bother your tummy or “repeat” as we say for burping them up, choose kohlrabi! Another wonderful vegetable Americans haven’t fully discovered! This recipe is a great opportunity to try it out and enjoy it’s crisp and crunchy texture! You can find kohlrabi at your local farmers markets and they come in green or purple! They are great peeled, eaten raw and great to use to dip into your favorite dips, or add to your stir fry!
