The combination of radish and cucumber is one I've used before – in a simple chopped salad with lemon and parsley. It makes such a colorful and refreshing side dish that pairs well with so many things!

This recipe is subtly different – because the vegetables are pickled. It gives a slightly Asian feel to the dish, like one of the tasty accompaniments on the side of a sashimi plate.

Actually it all started when I saw these radish “chips” – they're crinkle-cut and looked really appealing.

How to Make Pickled Radish and Cucumber Salad

If the radishes are already sliced, all you need to do is add some diced cucumber and a basic pickling liquid of apple cider vinegar, water, homemade simple syrup (or any liquid sweetener), salt, and pepper.

Once everything is mixed together, the veggies can just sit in the liquid, absorbing flavor. Leave them to marinate for at least 30 minutes.

If you want to enjoy them much later, transfer them to a jar and store them in the fridge.

Note: the natural pink color from the radishes will bleed into the white of the radishes if you leave them for more than a day. It doesn't change the flavor though!

How long do these last in the fridge?

They'd probably keep for up to a month, but as I mentioned in the recipe, the pink from the radishes does leak into the pickling juices, so although it tastes fine it doesn't look the same.
