Cucumbers and Radishes in Yogurt Sauce
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6 servings
This salad is technically called "smashed cucumber and radishes in yogurt sauce". That's because the recipe calls for you to dig in and smash the vegetables into bite size pieces - in the process, you release some of the best flavors of each of the two primary ingredients!
