Radishes are typically forgotten as a snack food in the U.S., instead being relegated to being diced up for salads. I recently went to Mexico, where radishes (and peppers) are served as frequently as french fries are in the U.S., and I think it's a lovely food tradition. So here's to a radish revival!

This recipe is a good one depending on the radish you use. It sounded great but the radishes I ended up this time were quite spicy without any seasoning. The ground peppercorns proved a bit too much this time. Next time we have radishes that aren't quite so flavorful I will definitely pull this out again! Read More

Although the salt and pepper add some kick it's not enough to make me swoon over this recipe. I was tempted to chop the cilantro and add that to the mix (and I still might!). For my taste the seasoning doesn't really improve on the radish as it is on it's own. Although I heartily agree with another reviewer: it's very pretty and would make a great "decorator food" for some table settings. Read More

My 9 year old daughter LOVED these but she has an extreme affinity for radishes. I liked the simplicity and pure nature of this idea but I think I would rather eat the radishes without the salt and pepper. This would make a BEAUTIFUL decoration for a rustic or French themed dinner table! Read More

Adding cilantro sea salt and pepper provided good flavor. The red radish with the white trimmed ends and the green cilantro is a colorful dish with kick. I liked the radishes prepared the way the recipe is written. I also liked it when I added a squirt of fresh lime. It took me 5 minutes to make this healthy snack. This radish fan loved it! Read More

Always been a family favourite for generations. with fresh bread and butter. Radishes must be kept crisp (in water). I'd ditch the cilantro. Simple and satisfying. Read More
