I used to work with a woman who would munch on raw radishes at her desk.
I thought it was gross.
But hey, she was a tri-athlete and in amazing shape and great health.
Maybe I should have munched on radishes, too.
I have to be honest; I never really understood their appeal. I didn’t mind them in small quantities, shaved over a salad, maybe, but I definitely didn’t want to eat one like an apple.
I do love them in this salad. It’s seriously low-cal but full of flavor. Radishes are said to soothe sore throats and aid in digestion, as well as eliminate toxins from the body and help protect against cancer.
Cucumber Radish Salad
For the salad:
1 English cucumber, washed and cut into thin rounds
10 radishes, washed and thinly sliced
For the dressing:
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 Tbs olive oil
1 garlic, minced
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
fresh ground pepper, or to taste
In a salad bowl, combine sliced radishes and cucumbers; set aside.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the dressing; taste for seasoning and adjust accordingly.
Add the dressing to the salad; mix well and place in the fridge for 15 minutes.
