This is one refreshing salad and much welcomed, since I have been eating a lot of everything lately.
I always like to have an easy salad in my repertoire, that takes no time to whip up.
I picked a cucumber from the garden, and bought some radishes at the farmer's market (my watermelon radishes don't come up until November, they are a 65 day fall crop).
The dressing is what makes this delicious, it uses pimenton, which is smoked Spanish paprika. Do not use regular paprika, different animal.
Smoky Cucumber, Radish & Avocado Salad (adapted from Cookin' Canuck):
1 garden fresh cucumber, cut into pieces
5 radishes, sliced thin
1 ripe avocado, sliced or cubed
handful of scallions
kosher salt & pepper
1/2 tsp pimenton (smoked Spanish paprika)
1 tsp honey
2 tbsp olive oil
juice of half a lemon
pinch of sea salt
It is self explanatory......just cut up all the stuff before drizzling w/ dressing.
I have eaten this salad 5 times now, it's so good!
