Cucumber/Radish Salad

I should have taken a photograph as this salad had the prettiest pink/green colour. Because of the salting and soaking, it takes on an almost transparent appearance

You Will Need:

1 bunch radishes sliced very thinly
1 large cucumber, halved lengthwise and sliced across as thinly as possible
1/2 cup cider vinegar
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 Tablespoon coarse salt
Pinch dried tarragon
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Water to top off jar

In a bowl, arrange the radishes and cucumbers in a shallow layer. Sprinkle with salt. let stand 30 minutes. Rinse, and drain well. In a dishtowel, squeeze out any moisture. The radishes and cucumber will look slightly shriveled. Mix remaining ingredients well. Place vegetables either in a jar or bow. Pour over marinade.If vegetables aren't covered with liquid, top off with a bit of water. Cover. Let stand a few hours before serving, but it will be better next day.
