It’s 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!
Makes about 12 servings (2/3 cup each)
4 cups thinly sliced English cucumber (about 1 to 2 cucumbers)
1 large Daikon radish, peeled and thinly sliced (about 2 cups)*

1/4 cup finely chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
3 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
