Author Notes

My Jewish grandmother used to make this salad while I was growing up. It's blends fresh ingredients creating a crisp, delightful salad perfect for warm weather. The combination of radish and cucumber give this salad a cooling kick. While she used iceberg lettuce, I replaced this green with organic romaine, and red butter lettuce and use watermelon radish instead of the traditional red radish. For a healthier version substitute Greek yogurt instead of sour cream (I love the sour cream version too). This salad is easy to create and refreshing crowd pleaser especially for the spring and summer season. - Priya Hutner, The Seasoned Sage —Priya Hutner
