I know it’s not the fresh kind of salad season yet. Most people love it when it gets warmer outside. My family and I LOVE fresh salads so much that there isn’t a single day when we don’t pair our meal with a salad. The only difference we make in our salads is the seasonal ingredients. I discovered this Red Radish Salad on a day when I hopelessly saw that there were only radishes left in the refrigerator. Glad there weren’t any other salad ingredients because we all loved this crunchy and fresh salad. A great alternative to our ultimate winter salad, Coleslaw without Mayo.
Greek yogurt and lemon juice give the salad a nice tang. You can use as much dressing as you like. I love to add extra when eating it. This is a super easy and quick kind of a salad with 6 simple ingredients. Chop or slice the red radish as you desire and make the dressing by combining Greek yogurt, lemon, poppy seeds, fresh dill and salt. Toss the chopped radish and serve it in a large bowl.
There is a saying in Turkish. You say “I am as strong as a radish” (turp gibiyim) which means you don’t have any health problems. I don’t know why this cute vegetable is chosen for this idiom, maybe it is because of its hard texture, which is not easy to mash when raw. Maybe it’s because it has several health benefits.
Red radish always reminds me of winter, it is like the symbol of this season. And we love to eat it raw as a side dish. Even we have a green salad on the table, sliced radish often accompanies. Sometimes when we don’t have enough time to prepare a big salad with many ingredients, just a simple radish salad accompanies our dinner. These pink beauties will make your dinner healthier and tastier, so try it! You can make this salad with whatever type of radish you have on hand.
