Nature is blossom and now is the best time to take advantage of its greens.
As we are close to Mid Summer I created this Birch Inspired salad for you to celebrate summer at its best.

Birch leaves gives this salad some fresh flavor. Also the leaves are a source of vitamin -C and B.

Enjoy this as a starter or serve it as a side salad.

There are some many good things in Finnish nature that we can use.

Let`s Celebrate our Pure & Rich Nature!


2 Cucumbers

1 Bunch Of Radish

1 tbsp Olive Oil

Lime & Lemon Juice

Salt & Pepper


Bunch Of Birch Leaves

Go ahead and find some birch leaves. Preferably small & young as the taste is more juicy. Pick up a few branches somewhere that is not too near traffic. 

Take few extra you`ll need them for decoration.

I bet you can find them almost everywhere.

Rinse the leaves properly.

Mix Olive oil, lime & lemon juices, salt and pepper in a bottom of a bowl.

Take the birch leaves and chop them as small as you can. Add in the bowl.

Peel the cucumbers & wash the radishes.
I used a cheese slicer to create a thin cucumber slices. That is quickest and easiest way!
Slice the radishes.

Mix with other ingredients. Let it set in a fridge a while or even overnight to maximize the flavors.

Place the salad in the middle of the serving tray.

Decorate with birch leaves & Whole radishes.

Enjoy this week before Mid - Summer Celebration!
