I have seen this ‘Cucumber & Radish Salad’ in many photos taken in Ukraine, and I did a little bit of research about the common ingredients of it. I am confident this salad is quite close to the ‘Cucumber & Radish Salad’ that many Ukrainian people make. It is very refreshing and delicious.


4 Servings


1 large Cucumber *I used 1 Continental Cucumber
5-6 large Radishes
1 clove Garlic *grated OR minced
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon Salt *alter the amount to suit your taste
Black Pepper as required
1 tablespoon White Wine Vinegar *OR Vinegar of your choice
1 tablespoon Sunflower Oil *OR Olive Oil
1-2 tablespoons coarsely chopped Fresh Dill
1 Spring Onion *finely chopped

  1. Remove tough skin of Cucumber if required, and cut into 4-5mm thick slices. Cut Radishes into slightly thinner slices. *Note: Do not slice them too thin.
  2. Place Cucumber, Radishes and Garlic in a mixing bowl. Add Salt & Black Pepper and mix to combine. Add all other ingredients and mix well. Serve immediately.
