Cucumber Radish Carpaccio Salad

    Cucumber Radish Carpaccio Salad

    Carpaccio traditionally refers to extremely thin slices of cured meat. These days, however, it’s a term that refers to thin slices of all sorts of items—including the perfect pairing of cucumber and radish. A mandoline works best to get whisper-thin slices for this elegant salad, but you can also—very carefully—use a very sharp chef’s knife. If available, try using watermelon radish for added visual appeal.

    2 cups (500 mL) very thinly sliced radish
    2 cups (500 mL) very thinly sliced cucumber
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) extra-virgin olive oil or camelina oil
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) white wine vinegar or white balsamic vinegar
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) black pepper
    1/3 cup (80 mL) grated feta cheese
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) chopped mint

    Arrange radish and cucumber slices on serving plates, alternating radishes with cucumber slices so they slightly overlap. In small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, and pepper. Drizzle dressing over vegetables and sprinkle feta cheese and mint over top.
