Radishes

This gorgeous little root vegetable is packed with antioxidants, comes in all different shapes, sizes and colors, and they’re related to horseradish.
STORAGE TIPS: Cut off the stems (leaving about 1″) as soon as you get home. Store the greens separately wrapped in paper towels or a flour sack cloth and then placed in a plastic bag in fridge (great sautéed, or made into pesto or try the Radish Top Soup below). The radishes themselves can be stored in a plastic bag in the fridge.

AVOCADO, RADISH, CILANTRO & WALNUT SALAD
My kids aren’t huge fans of a typical lettuce-based salad so I like to switch it up with a lettuce free salad every once in awhile. This one not only tastes good but is gorgeous as well.

CHILE-LIME ROASTED RADISHES WITH CILANTRO
This is a deliciously fun and different take on radishes. Trader Joe’s has a great chile-lime seasoning or you can make your own.

DAIKON RADISH & CUCUMBER SALAD
Purple daikon radish, green cucumbers and a zesty sesame dressing make this salad as tasty as it is gorgeous!

GARLIC ROASTED RADISHES WITH RANCH DRESSING
Roasting radishes mellows them and gives them a hint of sweetness from the caramelization.

GRILLED RADISHES
Super quick honey-lemon-garlic marinade and then a few minutes on the grill. The perfect summer side dish.

MEDITERRANEAN TUNA AND RADISH SALAD
Pantry meals that I can supplement with CSA ingredients are my go-to lately and this recipe has been on repeat in our house. We love the crunch that the radishes add to the tuna salad and the olives and parsley give it an interesting twist.

RADISH AND TURNIP HASH WITH GREEN GARLIC AND FRIED EGGS
Great for breakfast or breakfast-for-dinner, this recipe makes a mouth watering hash from radishes, turnips and green garlic. Top it with some farm fresh eggs and sprinkle with microgreens or pea shoots.

RADISH CARROT SLAW WITH TOASTED SESAME DRESSING
Try out this delicious Asian slaw but don’t toss those radish tops! Radish greens are peppery, like arugula, and are delicious in a salad or you can make them into a pesto or sauté them with a little olive oil and garlic.

RADISH TOP SOUP
Don’t throw out those radish greens! Give this creamy soup a try instead.

SPRING RADISH SALAD
Thinly shaved radishes are the highlight of this spring salad. I like to substitute pea shoots for the watercress but really you can you any type of lettuce you like.
