Top Tips for Making Radish Cucumber Salsa
The proportions of vegetables in this recipe do not have to be exact. If you are low on one ingredient, you can replace it with one of the other veggies.
For a spicy variation, replace the bell pepper with a serrano pepper.
1/2 teaspoon of salt should be sufficient, but I always suggest for others to salt to suit their own tastes!
You can chop the salsa ingredients coarsely for a chunkier salsa, finely for a delicate salsa, or you can even blend it for a smooth salsa.
This recipe can be enjoyed fresh or after having been stored for a while. When served fresh, it is crispier and fresher tasting. When served after it has marinated in the fridge for a while, it is still crisp, but with slightly stronger, more well developed flavors.
To store, place in lidded jars and refrigerate for up to one week.
