Top 10 Recipes to Celebrate the Radish!

Radishes are the signal that spring is finally here and I love their crisp, peppery taste when added to salads,  sandwiches or a protein.  There seems to be two camps of radishes – love ’em or hate ’em and, as with my vegetables, I love them and try to include them as often as possible.  They can be strong in taste but just make sure you slice them thinly, preferably with a mandolin, and it will not overpower your dish.

      Isn’t it funny how we discover as adults that we like a certain food, Sue? I think sometimes we miss out on veggies as kids because our parents didn’t like them so they never had them in the house. I just started eating rhubarb a few years ago and I loved it! lol

    Robyn, hello! Well my dear, I have to admit that I’m on the HATE ‘EM campsite…I’ve given radishes a try but that strong peppery taste is just not for me. Anything with HOT or pepper taste is off limits. Which is strange, since I’m of Mexican heritage! I’m a bad Latina, because I can’t handle chili or anything hot! teeeheheeeeee

    However…..these photos make some fabulous suggestions; I’d just exchange these little red hots with something milder…but what fantastic ideas!

    Have a marvelous day.

      LoL, that surprises me, Anita. I had no idea you didn’t like spice. I’m all about hot and spicy and sometimes go overboard with it. I have to wonder if radishes would be as popular as they are if they weren’t so darn cute, lol.
      Hope you had a fabulous holiday weekend, friend. Can’t wait to chat!

    Count me in the love ’em camp 🙂 I especially like them sliced paper thin. I find it keeps them from over-powering other ingredients that way. Beautiful round-up of great radish inspiration. Thanks for including my sandwiches. You’ve reminded me I need to make these agin 🙂

      Don’t you just love these little guys, Cheri? They add so much to a meal and I have to admit, I love a little bite in my dishes. Are you enjoying your summer in Oregon? Your garden looks so beautiful!

    Hello sweet friend. I know you are on the very busy path. These dishes look fabulous, almost too pretty to eat. The watermelon radishes make quite the statement. I can live without these beauties…they make the salads pop, however I don’t feel the need to add them….lol. Wishing you great success with the business. Lots of love from W.W.
