I am on a primarily raw food diet, and was thumbing through some recipes a friend suggested. This looked like a pretty good recipe for a cucumber salad that could be served like a potato or macaroni salad. The problem though, I didn't have all the ingredients or feel like using that much mayonnaise.

Using their recipe as a guideline and making some changes and substitutions I came up with this, it has that cool, refreshing kind of feeling.

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut cucumber into quarters lengthwise and then cut into small chunks. (peel first if desired)

    Cut carrots into small rounds.
  2. In a mixing bowl, toss cucumber, carrots, onion, tomato, mushroom and radish together with just a pinch of salt.

    In a separate small bowl, stir together sour cream, a few drops of lemon juice and sugar. It will be thick, but that is alright.
