Confetti Cucumber and Radish Salad Recipe
Confetti Cucumber and Radish Salad Recipe

This Confetti Cucumber and Radish Salad Recipe is like a garden in a bowl! Toss in-season and freshly sliced English cucumbers, Japanese Daikon radishes, red onions and a confetti of yellow, red and orange bell peppers with a refreshing lemon and olive oil vinaigrette.

Long, white, cylindrical Daikon may look different than red radishes, but they offer the same peppery bite and crisp crunch; rice wine vinegar is a perfect complement that adds an Asian flair. Every serving of this fresh salad provides over 80 percent of your daily vitamin C!
