  • 4 to 6 radishes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup diced English cucumber
  • 2 cups plain thick Greek-style yogurt
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped mint (optional)


Dice the radishes, removing both ends. Place them in a bowl, sprinkle with half the salt and stir. Place the cucumber in a small bowl and add the remaining salt. Let each marinate for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Combine the radishes and cucumber with the yogurt, garlic, capers and mint. Add a bit of extra salt if needed.

If you like, drizzle the top with olive oil and garnish with lemon slices and mint sprigs.
