Radish and Cucumber Salad

Featuring today a recipe for pretty simple limited ingredient spring salad with radishes and cucumber.

It requires up to 15 mins to prepare. Even less if you use mandeline instead of a knife.

This salad will be a good complement for a steak or some meat and vegetable entree.

If sour cream you use is thick, you can mix it with the lemon juice first before dressing the salad, that will make mixing of salad easier.

Spring Radish Salad

Spring Radish Salad

Another spring-envy salad, probably not as light as one would want, mostly because of mayo. But in this one I wouldn’t suggest to replacing mayo with sour cream or yoghurt.

It doesn’t take much time to prepare, about 15 mins of mostly chopping. Boil eggs in advance, let them cool down till room temperature before adding to the salad.

Prepare this salad right before serving for best taste.

Okroshka is traditional russian cold soup. It is perfect meal for hot summer weather as it is prepared on the base of kvass – russian bread drink – and it is light and very refreshing.

Finding good fresh kvass for okroshka can be challenging outside of former-USSR. You may try russian or ukrainian shop, or, of course, you can prepare kvass yourself. But If you are not lucky with any of these, you can also replace kvass with mineral water, kefir diluted with boiled cold water or even light beer.

Radish and Fresh Cheese Salad

Radish and Fresh Cheese Salad

Radish and Fresh Cheese Salad is a tasty way to feed yourself and your family a bit of calcium 🙂

I did have some troubles finding a suitable fresh cheese for this recipe, it should be fresh white quark (russian: tvorog), neither cottage cheese nor cream cheese will work here.

So if you have the same problem finding quark style fresh cheese like I had, try local Russian / Ukrainian / Polish store, most probably they have it. Of course, you can also make homemade soft cheese yourself.
