Cucumber Radish Salad

Cucumber Radish Salad

I love salads, especially this Cucumber Radish Salad. I eat them every single day with my main meal or on its own.

That being said, I do not know if this ever happens to you, but I crave salads.

I literally crave a bowl of greens drizzled with vinaigrette.

We rarely use store-bought dressing, but if I use it, then most likely it is Ranch or Thousand Island dressing.


Well, sometimes I like to experiment and get something else. However, I always come back to the homemade vinaigrette- lemon, olive oil, herbs and a dash of salt to taste.

What dressing do you like?

I really hope you guys like this one, because I just love fresh and refreshing salads like this.

In addition, summer season is around the corner and this will just make your body ready for the beach.

I know, just a mention of the beach makes me cringe. This past week I hit the first goal regarding my fitness journey.

I understand that some of you walk even more, or run, but for me, this was a goal that I was looking forward to finally accomplish.


Small steps, small goals until you are ready to set a bigger one. So, I hit 100K steps in a week. I was so freaking happy!

I decided to be on that goal for this week as well, and slowly increase it in April.

While I am talking about the fitness journey let me say that I have been on 4 days water fast and that was one amazing experience. I felt like I got that body RESET what I was looking forward to.


In those 4 days, I have lost 11 pounds, which was remarkable.

I only had water and hot tea to help with hunger cramps, but other than that I felt fantastic.

Also, I decided to do that one time a month and just cleanse, and detox my body and connect with myself just a bit more. Since doing Keto my life changed.

I did for 6 months then slowly started every other day introducing other foods such as fruit and vegetables. I realized that dairy milk does not agree with.


Also, I do not use regular sugar at all. I do not eat potatoes every day, peas or bananas but on days when I crave it.

We eat salads, like this Cucumber Radish Salad, and all kinds of other foods in moderation.

You would think that I consume it daily but I do not simple beause I crave vegetables too.

Regarding pasta, I try to eat gluten free also on days when I crave it. It is not on regular bases so I do not deprive myself. I walk daily si those burn pretty soon.

Let’s talk…

Tell me your journey… weight-loss story? What do you do to keep yourself in shape? Do you wish to start the weight-loss journey just to feel better?

Do you need motivation, healthy recipes or perhaps guidance on how to start, and what to do?

Well, I would love to help. please leave a comment and let’s talk about it. It can be totally ANONYMOUS.


Let me just be clear here for a second, I am not a skinny girl I never was and I never will be.

See, I do have curves that I finally love and appreciate. To be honest, I am healthy, I feel great and have a balance in my life.

I feel so much better when I am eating clean at least four times a week. However, at the same time, I like eating other foods sometimes.

Well, I love food, and I love cooking as you can tell. I try to exercise 5 days a week, to keep myself in the healthy weight and I actually feel fantastic.

Anyhow, please let me know if you want any recipes (made easy) that will support your diet, or clean up your diet, some guidance what to do and how to start weight loss journey, etc.

Let us just talk about it and motivate each other. It does not matter how old you are; we can always inspire and motivate one another, right?

I am not an expert at all, but I am a woman who went through so many ups and downs and I know what works for me.

That being said, without taking a step forward, moving my butt, and finding food that is working for my body I would not lose even one pound. In fact, I would gain weight.

It is a reality and that is the truth. There is no magic pill, you guys… Please, share with me!

Cucumber Radish Salad

Cucumber Radish Salad

Yield: Serves 2
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

I love salads, and I eat them every single day with my main meal or on its own. I don’t know if this ever happens to you, but I crave salads and this one is definitely a winner.


  • 1 English cucumber medium size
  • 6-7 Radish sliced
  • 1/4-1/2 Red onion
  • Pinch of salt to taste
  • 2-3 tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1-2 tbsp. Vinegar add more if you like it sour
  • Juice from 1/2 ripe lemon about 1 tbsp.
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar *optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground Black Pepper
  • Kosher Salt to taste


  1. You can slice thinly cucumber, radish, and onion, or use Spiralizer to slice the vegetables.
  2. Mix it together and add a generous amount of salt just to taste.
  3. In the jar add all the ingredients for the vinaigrette and mix it well to combine.
  4. Using spoon, drizzle vinaigrette all over the salad. You do not have to add every drop vinaigrette just add a couple of tablespoons and serve on the side if you need to add more.
  5. Serve immediately as it is or with any type of protein; fish, steak, burgers, chicken, tofu, etc.


You can use fennel, leeks or shallots with cucumber and radish. Perfect combo!

This Vinaigrette works for me personally, but you can add more or less to please your taste buds.

How to get most out of the lemon? Before slicing the lemon in half, roll the lemon on the countertop, applying a bit of pressure, then cut in half.
