The delicious dressing for this salad comes from the juices that form while the cucumber macerates with the other ingredients. Slideshow: More Cucumber Dishes

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large, resealable plastic bag, combine the cucumbers, garlic, chile, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1 tablespoon of the lime juice. Seal and shake the bag, squeezing slightly to mash the cucumbers and release the juices. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Step 2    

Drain the cucumbers, reserving 2 tablespoons of the cucumber juice. Discard the garlic and chile. In a medium bowl, whisk the cucumber juice with the remaining 1 tablespoon of lime juice and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the cucumbers, sliced radishes and herbs and season the salad with salt and pepper.

Step 3    

Arrange the salad on plates. Place a piece of burrata or buffalo mozzarella alongside each serving, drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and serve.
