Nothing beats an excellent summer salad on a blistering hot summer day. This easy radish salad makes the perfect side dish for your summer weeknight dinner or weekend barbecue. It's packed with cool cucumbers, crunchy beets, crispy pepper radishes, and sweet red onions. And it's accompanied by a homemade balsamic vinaigrette for a tangy, refreshing touch.

Radishes also provide antioxidants that fight free radical damage.
