Lebanese Radish Salad

Rated as 4.36 out of 5 Stars

"This easy dish was inspired by an appetizer I enjoyed once at a Lebanese restaurant in Atlanta. The simple combination of peppery radishes, toasted walnuts, and fresh mint is satisfying and somehow greater than the sum of its parts. It is prettiest when served immediately and tastes great with roasted meats and hearty grain salads. If you have leftovers, try tucking them into toasted pitas with a little goat cheese or feta."

Directions

  1. Toast walnuts in a dry skillet over medium heat, shaking occasionally, until fragrant and a shade darker, 2 to 4 minutes. Chop coarsely.
  2. Place radishes in a serving bowl.
  3. Whisk oil, lemon juice, salt, and honey in a small bowl until combined; drizzle over radish slices and toss to coat.
  4. Stack mint leaves, roll tightly, and slice crosswise into thin ribbons. Fold mint and walnuts into salad.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Walnut oil can replace olive oil, if desired.
  • You can use a knife or a food processor fitted with a slicing blade to slice the radishes, but a V-slicer or mandoline makes neat, round, uniform slices.
  • Some radishes are more peppery than others. If yours are particularly hot, you may want to use more honey or lemon juice, or both, to balance the flavor.
  • Use a slotted spoon to serve, as liquid will collect in bottom of bowl as salad sits.

I dont like radishes, but I had a boat load from my farm share, so I decided to give it a shot. I would make this again. I used 1/2 the amount of mint b/c my husband isn't a fan.

This salad is a personal favorite and VERY filling. On its own, it seemed a bit wanting to me. So, I tossed it over chopped spinach as a salad filler. That gave it a more well-rounded feel to...

I'm not a fan of radishes in general and this recipe made them not only edible, but delicious! I read the recipe wrong and accidentally used 2 tablespoons of lemon juice so I upped the honey to ...

Good salad, made 1/2 batch and went very light with dried mint. Sliced the radishes in the food processor.

This only 4 stars because of operator error: I've only made this 1 time & must make it again. I forgot to buy mint so used Penzey's Greek seasoning. I loved it but want to try it again with ALL ...

This is the first recipe I've ever rated on here. It was THAT GOOD! Realized I forgot the honey after the first bite, shredded my radish for a slaw versus slicing, scaled it down for one person,...

Its May, and it is radish season! Also I have fresh mint growing in my guerrilla garden, so I really wanted to try this recipe. Because of time I only made roughly a third or the recipe. We wer...
