It has been kind of crazy at home lately, hence the less-than-consistent posting (sorry!), but I’ve been able to fit in a few delicious meals here and there and this one is definitely among them. The best way for my to describe this to you is that it’s the love child of tzatziki sauce and a potato-less potato salad. 😉

This refreshing, light, and yummy salad can be eaten as a side, used as a dip for crunchy pita chips or placed in a wrap (maybe with baked falafel?). It is super easy to make, even if you don’t have a spiralizer, and aside from soaking the cashews it takes hardly any time at all!

With fresh ingredients like this, I just had to call it a creamy greek summer salad. The crisp cucumbers, peppery radishes, and fresh lemon juice bring this dish to life and will make the transition from spring to summer much easier.
