    Had to use up some radishes from a produce delivery - this was surprisingly delicious! Used whatever apples I had on hand and subbed parsley for dill (b/c I had it). Can't wait to make it with fresh dill in the warm summer months.
    This is one of those quintessential Russian salads I grew up with. Of course, as with all highly traditional dishes, there is a lot of regional variation. Such as:
     - Adding apples to salads is mostly a northern thing. St. Peterburgians add apples to every salad in existence, it's as ubiquitous for them as parsley is for Americans. In other areas of the country, people generally don't do this.
     - In Moscow, where I am from, people add chopped hardboiled egg and minced scallions.
     - In the south, adding cilantro is also common.
    I used yogurt instead of sour cream. The recipe was good, but my radishes were too bitter to eat.
    Just what I needed. I got two bunches of organic radishes in my coop shares and had all the rest in the fridge to make this original and very tasty salad; everyone loved it. The only change I made was shifting from sour cream, which I did not have on hand, to plain yogurt. The radishes were mild, had they been very strong or bitter that could changed the outcome. Taste them first, if that is the case, simply grate your radishes to disperse them among the cucumber and apples. Again, five stars for an original, very palatable, and not to forget fast salad.
    dressing was perfect, and the mix of fruit/vege was different, and yummy
    I tried this recipe for Father's Day. I thought is was a nice crisp, different salad. My family isn't quite as adventurous so it was a "it's ok salad" If I had it again I'd use a much tarter apple to hold up to the spiciness of the radishes.
    I had just bought some huge radishes because they are so good for your liver and found this recipe. I don't care for fruit salads so I omitted the apple and it was soooo good. The fresh dill really makes a huge difference. I could eat this every day!
    We received radishes in our produce box, and I don't like them, so I was looking for an easy way of preparing them.
     This recipe was very tasty and easy. I used fat free sour cream, because I bought it by mistake, a Pink Lady apple, because I had one on hand, and dried dill weed, because I didn't have any fresh dill. Even with those changes, the recipe turned out great.
    I made this tonight and it was a big hit with my family and so easy to make! The flavors were very refreshing together.
    I never thought I liked radishes until I had this salad! It was very refreshing. I had to stop myself from eating the whole bowl. ;-)
    I had made this salad for the 4th of July (2007) & I love everything that is in this salad (except for red delious apples), but when you put them all together, it was I don't know if it was the apples that through it off or what, but I just did not like it. Sorry, Rach - I still love you!!!
    This has a great mix of textures and flavors! Easy to throw together and perfect for these hot summer nights!
    You wouldn't think this was good, but it really is. I made this dish as a side at a luncheon for some friends who are vegetarian. They loved it.
    This recipe is a definite five star. Delightful and refreshing with the sweetness of the lemons and the apples. My husband won't eat sour cream so I used plain yogurt and I liked it even better. Try it! You won't be disappointed.
    What a nice alternative to the usual salad. It is sweet and tangy, crunchy and soft and easy to make. I used dried dill as I didn't have fresh, but other than that I made it as directed. This is a nice cool side dish for summer.

    This recipe is very simple, easy to make with basic ingredients but delivers great flavor. It tastes very fresh and light. There is a little too much sugar for my taste so I when I made it for the second time, I only put in 1 tbsp of sugar and it was better that way. It allows the flavors of the lemon and dill to come through better. I will make it again for sure- it's my favorite salad of the moment! My husband, who is not a great fan of salads, loved it as well!
    the flavors of this salad go together perfectly. It took no time to make and was incredibly good.
    I wasn't sure I wanted to try this when my husband found the recipe, but, it is fantastic! It is now one of our favorite salads in the summer.
