Bacon and Redcurrant Crunchy Summer Salad Recipe

There are as a rule, not a wide variety of uses for radishes, but combined with less sharply flavoured ingredients, they can be a terrific way to liven up your summer salad repertoire.


Prep Time

15 minutes

Cooking Time

8 minutes



Recipe Ingredients

  • 125g SPAR diced bacon (1/2 a pack)
  • 150g tray SPAR Freshline radishes
  • ¼  SPAR Freshline cucumber
  • 15ml  redcurrant jelly
  • 100ml  SPAR bacon flavoured Mayo

Recipe Method

  1. Dry-fry or microwave the bacon until very crisp and well browned. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  2. Cut the rinsed and unpeeled radishes and cucumber into paper-thin slices and toss together.
  3. Combine the redcurrant jelly and mayonnaise in a separate bowl. Set aside.
  4. Scatter the bacon over the vegetables, and pour over the dressing as required. Serve soon.

Hints & Tips

Using the slicing blade in a food processor, and feeding the radishes and cucumber through the chute onto the spinning blade, helps complete the slicing work beautifully and evenly  in just 1 minute!
Only add the dressing at serving time so the enjoyment of the crunchy vegetables is ensured.
