A radish is a nutritious root vegetable. There are different types of radishes in existence – daikon (white Japanese radish), green Chinese radish (that resembles daikon in its appearance), black Spanish radish, watermelon radish, and the most common red radish (that is either sold loose or in a bunch with leafs on top) among other varieties.

Radishes are low in calories, and are a great source of vitamins (vitamin C, vitamin B-6), minerals (iron, magnesium, copper, and calcium), dietary fiber, and anti-oxidants. They have a sweet taste though they can be a bit bitter as well. They can be eaten raw, used in sandwiches, pickled, steamed, sautéed, stir fried or used in salads.

Below you will find a few of my radish salad recipes that are easy to make and don’t take up a lot of time.

5 stars from 1 rating of Radish Salads

Red Radish with Sour Cream Salad

Ingredients:

  • Red radish
  • Scallion or Chibolita onions
  • Fresh dill
  • Dried parsley flakes
  • Sour Cream
  • Salt

Step 1: Wash the red radish thoroughly if it is loose and cut the top and bottom of the radish a little bit. (If the red radish comes in a bunch, first remove the radish from the leafs by cutting with a knife or a pair of kitchen scissors where the radish is attached to the leafs). Then cut them any way you like – slices, cubes, quarters – and place into a salad bowl. For one person I’d take about 4 radishes if medium size, but it’s really about how much you want to eat.

Step 2: Take a few stalks of scallion or a stalk of Chibolita onions (which are similar to a scallion), thoroughly wash them, and cut into little pieces. Add to the salad bowl with the radish.

Step 3: Take some fresh dill, thoroughly wash it, cut it into little pieces, and add to the salad bowl.

Step 4: Add a desired amount of salt to the salad bowl, sprinkle with dried parsley flakes, and add a few table spoons of sour cream and stir. Then you are ready to serve.

If you’d like you can even add sliced tomatoes and dried cranberries to the salad.

Red Radish with Feta Cheese Salad

  • Grapeseed oil (olive oil or sunflower oil good too)
  • Dried basil

Step 1: Take a desired amount of (red) radishes and thoroughly wash them under running water. Then cut off the top and bottom of each radish. When done, shred the radishes in a food processor or a manual shredder and place into a salad bowl.

Step 2: Take a piece of Greek feta cheese, shred it with a manual shredder and add to the salad bowl with the radish.

Step 3: Add a pinch of salt, sprinkle with dried basil, add a desired amount of grapeseed oil (or another oil of your choice), and mix well.

You are now ready to enjoy this delicious salad. Have it as a side dish along with you favorite dishes or eat it on its own with some freshly baked bread.

      I love radishes and eat them frequently with just a little salt. In France, they eat radishes with melted butter. I look forward to trying the roasted sesame seeds and olive oil recipe. Thank you!
