Looking for a recipe to use radishes from my garden, I came across this salad at a local restaurant. It's so good, I had to share.

I went out and bought fresh radishes specifically for this salad. I only added some fresh ground pepper, no other changes. I made this when I got home from the store this morning and left it in the fridge for a couple hours before I scooped some out and ate it for lunch. This is the tastiest way I've eaten radishes, pretty much EVER. This salad is incredible. I'm about to go fix another bowl it's so good. WOW! Read More

I had really high hopes for this salad but I have to disagree with al the people saying it was really good. Honestly all I could taste was olive oil. The "dressing" was olive oil with a hint of vinegar. I literally couldn't eat it. I might as well have been drinking olive oil out of the bottle. I think however if you made the dressing actually a vinaigrette instead of olive oil then this would be decent. I would also cut back on the onions as red onions are very strong and maybe add more cucumber. Also in terms of quantity there was just too much dressing compared to the ingredients. They were swimming in it. Read More

I over planted this year and had about 10 lbs of radishes from my garden to use. Just came across this recipe and it is so good! I left out the white sugar but made no other changes. This was simple and a great alternative to just throwing radishes into a tossed salad. Thanks for sharing! Read More

Made this last night and loved it. I omitted the sugar (I just forgot actually), and used dried dill instead of fresh (for converting to dried herbs, remember the baseline of 1 TBSP fresh = 1 TSP dried), and it was quite the nice accent. I imagine the vegetable selections are exchangeable, but I prefer to eat vegetables that I normally don't (the radish!), and this combo of flavours works well. Leaving it to set is also definitely important - I taste tested multiple times during the hour, and it was definitely better the longer it sat. Will make this again, esp. in the summer. Read More

Even the people who said they didn't like radishes ate it and liked it. Had green onions from the garden and used those in place of the red onion. Turned out great and it was all gone by the end of the evening. Read More

wonderful with chopped cabbage as a coleslaw. The juices make great dressing. Read More

I liked it. It's not something I would want to eat all the time, but there's nothing wrong with the salad, I'm just not THAT into radishes. There wasn't anything I thought of changing though. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

Excellent. A different (to me) way to use a couple of summer favorites. I had my chopper out so I used it to cut the radishes and cukes into a small dice. Next time I'll use a larger dice because the small dice turned out more like a veggie salsa. Tasty and healthy. The fat grams in the nutrition data are way overstated. The recipe calls for 4 teaspoons of olive oil per serving which is 18 fat grams per serving. So if you serve this dish with a slotted spoon you won't be eating that full amount of the dressing.

Yum! Different and refreshing. The dill is a nice touch. I subbed 1 tbs applesauce and 1 tbs orange juice instead of adding sugar and also added chopped celery. Excellent way to mix up the menu and looks great on the table! Read More
