Text & photos: Johanne Mosgaard

A fresh and tasty summer salad with the cucumbers from the greenhouse, and red radishes and dill from the garden. Adjust the garlic after your personal taste but be sure to use a good amount of dill. Perfect as a side dish.

Serves 4



  • 1 big cucumber
  • 1 red onion
  • 6-7 red radishes 

Yoghurt dill dressing:

  • 200g of Greek yoghurt*
  • 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1 big clove of garlic
  • A bunch of fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

*For a dairy free version, you can replace the Greek yoghurt with plant-based alternatives.



Cut the cucumber lengthwise and cut it in thin slices. Cut the red onion and radishes in thin slices as well. Mix the dressing out of the yoghurt, mustard, lemon juice, a pressed garlic clove and finely chopped dill. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Combine the dressing with the vegetables and serve the cucumber salad as a side dish at your next barbeque party.

If possible, prepare the cucumber salad right before serving. Otherwise, the cucumber may build up liquid. Just be aware of that and make sure to pour off some of the liquid and to stir the salad before serving.
