Say that 3 times fast! Ravishing cucumber radish salsa salad, ravishing cucumber radish salsa salad, ravishing cucumber radish salsa salad! Okay, okay, I’m just kidding, and annoying, I know. But you guys are going to LOVE this one! I thought of this because radishes are one of the few things I’m allowed to eat on my protocol, but I hate them. I’m serious, I’ve never ever liked radishes. So, like any normal person, I thought, hey, lets make a recipe with them and see if it makes me like them! Usually this would never work, but this time it did! I LIKE RADISHES NOW!

The recipe is super easy and really tones down the bitterness of the radishes. You can put it on tacos, eat it on its own as a side dish or add it to a salad. I put it on tacos one night and it was sooo good, the next day I added it to my salad and it added really nice crunch and zest! I always see street tacos with little radishes on top and this recipe reminds me of those, only it looks a lot prettier!
