The garden was producing baby greens, green onions, radishes, and herbs. I had cherry tomatoes and cucumbers from elsewhere. That’s how this salad was born. 🙂
Cottage Radish Salad
- 8 to 10 radishes thinly sliced
- 1/2 cucumber peeled, sliced in quarter slices
- 8 to 10 cherry tomatoes halved
- 2 tablespoons green onion diced
- 1/4 small onion sliced thinly
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh basil chopped
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup cottage cheese
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice fresh
- 2 tablespoons yogurt or sour cream
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt or to taste
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper or to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- baby greens or larger greens torn into bite-size pieces
Toss all but greens together in a mixing bowl.
Taste and adjust seasonings.
Arrange greens on the bottom of each salad bowl.
Top with the vegetable cottage cheese mixture and serve.

This post is part of the Using the Garden Veggies blog hop, hosted by Merissa at Little House Living. Each week through July and August, one participating blogger will feature a garden veggie. As you probably guessed, my veggie is the crisp and spicy radish. 🙂 Keep an eye out on our Facebook page throughout the summer for more garden fresh recipes.

This looks so good! In a few months it will be cool enough to plant radishes again. Hopefully the heat will have been kind to the tomatoes and the cucumbers so I can give this a try. I think we’d really like it.
Right now we’ve been eating a lot of marinated pole bean salads. Sometimes I toss them with a vinagrette, feta, and whatever herbs I happen to have on hand.

In the middle of summer, I like adding raw coarsely grated young zucchini to our salads. I enjoy their almost creamy touch.

Carole — I love that idea! Thank you for sharing. 🙂
