A crispy, juicy, and sweet radish salad with white radish, radicchio, garden cress and a simple vinaigrette.
White radish, also known as daikon, is moderately high in Vitamin C, and contain dietary fiber which is important to help keep your body's digestive system functioning smoothly. According to "Traditional Chinese Medicine", white radish is sweet in taste and cool in nature. It aids to clear away heat in the body effectively and promote the digestion.
It is also used in the treatment of asthma, bronchitis, mineral deficiencies, and liver and gallbladder troubles.
While white radishes can be eaten cooked, such stir-fried or in soup, they are very delicious in raw form and juiced. If you are interested in learning more about this humble root vegetable, read more here.
Recipe adapted from Essen und Trinken

  • 200 g Large white radish
  • 1 small head Radicchio
  • 1 handful Garden cress
  • 2 tbsp White wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Argan or vegetable oil
  • Pinch of sugar

  • 1/2 tsp Crushed red peppercorns

  1. Peel the radish and slice it into thin disks or half-moons. Try using a mandolin slicer if you have one, for even thin slices. Finely shred the radicchio.
  2. Whisk the white wine vinegar with the oil, sugar, and salt. Arrange the radish, radicchio and garden cress on a serving dish. Drizzle the dressing over and sprinkle with the crushed red peppercorns.

Gorgeous presentation and amazed at the medicinal value

I had no idea radishes had such powers. Amazing. Beautiful salad Angie. Love the touch of red peppercorns.

Sprigs of Rosemary 24/7/11 12:56

So, so pretty you made this! I love just to munch on radishes; but, I've never had a white one!

Tina @flourtrader 24/7/11 13:19

Very informative post here! I never knew all the benefits of radishes, guess I need to eat more of them. Your salad is a nice way to get them into my diet. Great pics.

Such elegant summer salads!

Sissi 24/7/11 13:37

I love this combination and your presentation is beautiful! I am a big fan of daikon. The Japanese say it helps to absorb less salt, so I often have it with miso soup (quite salty).

Jennifer @ eatyourvegetable 24/7/11 13:37

Thank you!! I just bought a bunch of radishes, got them home, then realized I had no idea what to do with them. But they were just so pretty! :)

Lin Ann 24/7/11 13:42

This is such a beautiful salad! I love radishes. Although I'm the only one in my family who does, I try to get my family to eat them through creative dishes like this. Nice presentation!

Carol 24/7/11 14:18

Looks beautiful! I've recently come to really love radishes, love that peppery flavor and that crunch, brings so much to a salad. I'd love this one!

Min 24/7/11 14:19

A very healthy salad dish, I love the colour combination, looks so sweet :)

Kelly @ Eat Yourself Skinny 24/7/11 16:50

What a gorgeous presentation, this looks delicious :)

Pacheco Patty 24/7/11 17:46

I've always been a radish lover and add them to my green salads all the time. But, I like the idea of a salad featuring radishes especially with the lovely garden cress sprinkled on top;-)

Kumi 24/7/11 18:01

Angie, what a beautiful presentation of a nice cooling salad! We eat daikon radish a lot here, too, and this will be added to my recipe list for sure! Thanks for sharing.

Megan 24/7/11 18:49

Angie! Gorgeous.... - your presentation is divine! Love it!

Tiffany 24/7/11 19:14

I discovered garden cress this spring in North Carolina! That peppery flavor and delicate texture is addicting!

Faith 24/7/11 19:24

I think this has to be one of the prettiest salads I've ever seen...and I can just imagine it's bright, refreshing flavor!

Please remember to use the "Name/Url" when commenting rather than linking to your profile page for more exposure!

Just realized this line before above your comment section, Angie! I should borrow this line from you since quite a few blogger don't even know what is the Name/URL, and the problem with google which still isn't solved, this option would work best!
The issue I had at my son's has no bearing on your blog; the only reason it blocked from even browsing, is because you have a lot of advertisement on your blog. I'm using my computer now, and it works just fine!

Love the radish salad...it appears to be Daikan radish which is a huge favorite of mine. Love the colorful radicchio, and the watercress combo.
So refreshing, and delish!!!

Kate@Diethood 25/7/11 03:18

Your photos are always incredible... you make a salad look sexy! WOW! :)

Claudia 25/7/11 03:21
