  1. First, use a mandoline to thinly slice the radishes. If you don’t have a mandoline, use a regular knife to cut them as thinly as possible, or, slice them like regular and then cut them into quarters so they don’t overwhelm the salad. 
  2. For English or Persian cucumbers, you can just go ahead and cut them into thin slices with a knife or mandoline. But, if you’re using a regular cucumber, first cut it in half so you can scoop out the seeds before slicing them into half-moons.
  3. Toss the radishes and cucumbers into a bowl and then zest one of the limes right on top. Then, cut both the limes in half and juice them into the bowl. 
  4. Mix everything and then leave in the fridge for 20-30 minutes to marinade. 
  5. Then, add in the olive oil, salt, and pepper and mix well. 
  6. Finally, roughly chop the mint, add to the bowl, and lightly toss. 
  7. Enjoy!
