Quick Cucumber, Tomato, Onion, and Radish Salad

It’s that time of year! No, not all the fresh summer produce salad recipes, but my quickie recipes for when we are headed to the coast again to go fishing and/or crabbing. Once again, we’ll be on another extended weekend trip so am posting this one early instead of Saturday.

We didn’t catch any halibut last trip, it was super-windy with 6-to-8-foot horrible wind waves and our bait wouldn’t stay on the bottom with all the rocking and rolling. Then I got seasick as hell, WAHHH! Hubby will attempt again this weekend, while I’ll stay behind and fish the calm river for salmon.

I was wanting to make a Panzanella salad out of what produce I had on hand, but last minute hubby couldn’t help with the prep of this and ran out of time to make the bread cubes since I didn’t have any stale bread on hand. So this is what I came up with. Lively, fresh, and delicious!

The cucumber came from a friend’s garden, the tomatoes from our own, and the radishes from the farmer’s market. The rest came from the store (organic as possible).

And this would also make a great side dish for a Labor Day BBQ or picnic! This no-mayo recipe makes it a snap to store and serve.

Quick Cucumber, Tomato, Onion, and Radish Salad

1 English cucumber, sliced and quartered (about 2 cups, can be more or less)
1 cup fresh diced tomatoes
1/2 cup diced sweet onion
1/2 cup diced radishes
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon rice vinegar, or plain white
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
Salt and ground black pepper, to taste

Prep all the ingredients, toss in a bowl and stir to combine. Refrigerate one hour or more. Serve with a slotted spoon. See? Quick and easy. Yumm!

    Perfect for a late summer hurry-blurry day, Kathryn! Safe journey, and catch a bunch of fish!
    (I’m trying to eat more fish than meat, so I’m looking forward to the recipes!) Mega hugs

    Love this type of salad this time of year. Eat it so often for a few weeks, then miss it in the winter! Sorry you didn’t catch any halibut 😦 Love that fish!

    Wonderful. Reminds me of a summer afternoon with all of the family gathered at the East Texas farm.

    Sounds zesty and refreshing, Kathryn. Have a great day fishing and I hope the weather holds. It’s raining up here. I’m going to cry if it’s already the rainy season!

      It was supposed to be sunny the entire time when I looked earlier in the week, but now there is a chance of showers every day except Sunday. I am not ready for summer to end! And thank you Diana! Leaving here shortly.

      Thank you Gerlinde! It was beautiful, sunny calm waters the entire time and my husband caught a 40-inch Chinook salmon, woo hoo! πŸ™‚

        I’m with Stefan on the recipe front. Though, cold smoked comes to mind.

        That might be a good idea. We lost our charcoal smoker in the flooding last year, but I think we have an electric one here at the house if we didn’t donate it when we moved and downsized. Do you cold smoke on the cold side of a grill? I’ll have to google your recipe on that, if you have one.

    You can sure tell that summer’s harvest is in. This salad you’ve created is a great way to take advantage of the bounty, Kathryn. It’s simple dressing is the way to go, too. My neighbors on both sides of my house have been giving me a couple cucumbers every few days. I think they’re in cahoots and never give me cukes on the same day. As a result, I’ve been eating a cucumber-tomato salad almost nightly. Yours will be on the menu very soon. Just need to get some radishes. Thanks!

      Hey you bet John! I have so many tomatoes and chile peppers to harvest since we’ve been gone for five days, I can see some canned fire-roasted salsa in the real near future, lol. πŸ™‚

        I’m loaded with chiles, too, and have been sneaking a cayenne pepper into each jar of cherry bomb peppers that I’ve preserved. πŸ˜€
