Day 144: Black Radish Salad



Wouldn't you think a black radish might, you know, be BLACK? Well maybe not, since red radishes are only red on the outside.

Silly me, I thought a black radish would taste considerably different than a red radish. It doesn't.

It IS however much bigger, more the size of a large sweet potato. The one in the photo weighed half a pound.

This was good enough but I wouldn't go out of my way to have again. The salad itself was the same, fresh, light, enjoyable even, just not something to have again.

I CAN see how it might be a refreshing to the palate, however, if paired with fatty meat.

And I've got three more like this to go so look for more ideas.

PS I did use some of the salad along with egg/sour cream to make a fritatta for supper. It was quite good.

I have NEVER heard of black radish - but this is spectacular. I bet there are some great lunch options just waiting to be discovered on this site. Thanks AK!

Black radish is great! Try adding some diced cukecumber to your recipe for a variation.
