My Favorite Radish Salad Recipe

Radish salad

The garden is coming up radishes!
I was never really fond of radishes but they are so easy to grow I just had to put some in the garden. Now I have so many I had to figure out the best way to eat them all. My sister shared this recipe with me and now I’m a radish lover.

Radishes originated in china and are related to the cabbage family. They are a great source of vitamin C, fiber and are tasty straight from the garden. They are spicy and have a lot of heat when they are young and very fresh. If you like a milder radish I recommend one of the white varieties. I grew Halestone Radishes this year.

Here is the simple, easy recipe:

1 cup radishes sliced
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 cucumber cut into small chunks
Handful of fresh green beans cut into 1-2 inch pieces

Mix together and add:

2 parts lemon juice to 1 part olive oil.
A dash of pepper
a sprinkle of sea salt.
