  1. Trim and thinly slice radishes and cucumber into rounds. Trim and thinly slice scallions. Pick cilantro leaves from stems; discard stems.
  2. In a bowl, combine radishes, cucumber, vinegar, 1 tsp sugar, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Taste and add a pinch more sugar if you like a sweeter pickle. Set aside, stirring occasionally, until ready to serve.
