Is radish healthy?
Radish is a healthy veggie that contains lots of health benefits and vitamins. The little chilliness of the radish confers it a lot of Vitamin C that is very important to our immune system. Eating raw radish plays a key role in our healthy body as it is packed with vitamin E, A, C, B6, lots of antioxidants, zinc, potassium, and other good benefits. All these health benefits play an important role to keep our body in good working conditions.
So, in conclusion, I can easily say that radish is a super veggie that must be introduced in our menu.
Can you eat radish leaves in a salad?
Some years ago I was throwing the radish leaves as I thought that they were bitter and unhealthy. Since I got addicted to James Oliver’s kitchen I understood that the radish leaves are also healthy and can be easily used in the salads. The greens have a nice flavour and can be healthily used, but you should pay attention to their freshness. In case they look wilted and unfresh throw them in the compost.
How to make radish avocado salad?
Making a radish avocado salad is a simple pleasure. I eat at least 3 radishes while I cut them for the salad. I adore that barely chilli bites from the radishes that nicely combines with other ingredients.
- 15 radishes, thinly sliced
- 3 ripe avocados
- 1 small red onion
- 1 jalapeno, finely cut
- Fresh basil
- Cilantro leaves
- ¼ fresh lime juice
- 2-3 extra virgin olive oil
- Pinch sea salt
- Italian herbs
First, start to wash all the veggies and add them to the salad spinner. However, wipe with some kitchen towel the radishes. Start thinly slicing the radishes. Chop the basil and cilantro and set aside. Take a bowl and start combining all the ingredients. Add the sliced radishes, the onion, the basil, jalapeno, and pour some lime juice, olive oil and season with herbs and salt. Arrange the finely sliced avocados on a platter next to the radish salad. Drizzle some olive oil from a high over the plate. Top some cilantro leaves and serve immediately.

Can you make radish salad ahead?
This salad has a big advantage as it can be easily made ahead. All the ingredients can be chopped and sliced some hours ahead and stored in the fridge. However, you will toss the lime juice and olive oil, as well as seasoning upon assembling the salad just before you want to serve it. Otherwise, you will get soggy and untasty radishes.
- Try to use small to medium size red radishes as they are chillier and crunchier.
- Use different ingredients to personalize it. Beetroot, cheese, cucumbers, chickpeas, and other ingredients can make your radish salad heartier, satisfying, and tasty.
- The dressing can also vary. Use plain yoghurt or sour cream to make this salad taste creamier.
- Easily store the chopped ingredients without dressing them to avoid soggy radishes.
- Radishes are a super healthy veggie, so try to eat it as often as you can.
A cheap salad doesn’t mean an unhealthy or untasty one. On the contrary, a cheap salad can take your dish to the next level. Radish and avocado salad is a colourful and extremely flavorful salad to serve next to anything.
