Whole-Leaf Radish and Herb Salad
This bright and rejuvenating summer salad takes advantage of the season’s fresh herbs.
- 3 cups loosely packed small, tender radish leaves (or use larger, tender leaves torn into pieces)
- 2 cups quartered radishes
- 2 cups loosely packed small fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
- ¾ cup loosely packed small sprigs dill
- ¾ cup loosely packed sprigs chervil
- ¾ cup loosely packed fresh tarragon leaves
- 1 ½ teaspoons other red-wine vinegar
- ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
In a large serving bowl, combine the radish leaves, radishes, parsley, dill, chervil, and tarragon. Cover and chill for about 30 minutes to crisp the leaves.
In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar and salt, then whisk in the oil to make a dressing. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss gently to coat evenly. Season with salt to taste.
Warm Asparagus, Radish, and New Potato Salad with Herb Dressing Recipe
Potato salad gets a makeover for the season with the addition of roasted asparagus and radishes. The tangy dressing can be made up to a week in advance and stored in the refrigerator. Roasted vegetables hold up better on a Easter buffet than a bowl of mixed greens&mdashand they&rsquore more interesting too. A tip from the Test Kitchen: If your potatoes are taking longer to roast, keep them going before adding the asparagus. A soft potato is better than a mushy asparagus.

♻️ Sustainable kitchen tips
We believe that living a green lifestyle starts in the kitchen, so here are a few tips to make this recipe healthy for you AND the planet.
Use root-to-stem cooking techniques. The great thing about radishes is you can truly use root-to-stem cooking on all parts of the vegetable. Use radish roots in salads or bake sliced radishes into chips, use the stems to season a homemade vegetable broth, and use the tops in a sauce like chimichurri.
To make this recipe healthier, choose whole grain pasta. Choose whole grains whenever possible, including in pasta. Whole grain pasta is higher in fiber and other nutrients compared to refined white pasta and is closer to grain's natural state, which means it’s a healthier choice for you and for the planet (EAT Lancet Report).
Stock up on pesto for other meals. Did you make more pesto than you actually need for this pasta? Great! Freeze it in an airtight container for up to 2-3 months to enjoy later in soups, stews, and on top of roasted or grilled vegetables.
Celery, Radish, Blue Cheese Salad with Buttermilk Herb Dressing
In late winter and early spring, I begin to need crunchy vegetables in an almost circadian way. My yearnings turn from the long cooked winter squashes and roasted broccoli of wintertime to bright green spring flavors that snap. That’s when this salad steps in, before the actual greens are growing in my garden. I remove the larger celery stalks and use them for mirepoix. If the outer stalks starts to look spent, move them to the stock-starting bag of vegetable scraps in the freezer. For this salad, I use the heart of the celery, the pale green, almost yellow, tender stalks and leaves. My favorite blue cheese, sharp and creamy, is from Point Reyes if your blue cheese is very salty, reduce the salt in the dressing. The toasted pecans are an essential part of the whole shebang I candy them but you don’t have to.
1 celery heart, root end removed, sliced in 1-inch sections, on the diagonal, leaves and all
2 or 3 radishes, depending on size, sliced thin
1 one-ounce slice of blue cheese
2 tablespoons (1/4 ounce) blue cheese
2 tablespoons chopped flat leaf parsley
2 tablespoons chopped chives
1 tablespoon honey (hot honey, if you wish)
Several turns of the pepper grinder
In a small skillet, toast the pecans for about 7 minutes. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the pecans and shake the pan as the sugar melts and sticks to the toasted nuts. Keep shaking the pan until the sugar has melted and coated the pecans. Remove them from the pan and let them cool while composing the celery, radishes, and blue cheese on a salad plate because you are special and your salad should be pretty. Add the pecans.
Place the buttermilk, blue cheese, parsley, chives, honey, salt, and pepper into the blender and whir until smooth. Taste and add salt or pepper, if needed. Alternatively, use your chef’s knife to finely chop the herbs and, in a jar with a tight fitting lid, shake the ingredients until combined.
- ½ ripe peeled avocado, sliced
- 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
- 2 ears yellow corn with husks
- 2 heads Boston or Bibb lettuce
- ½ cup thinly sliced radishes
- ½ cup Avocado-Herb Dressing
Combine sliced avocado and juice in a small bowl cover and refrigerate. Trim both ends of corn cobs, leaving husks from corn intact. Place the corn on a baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 20 minutes or until tender. Cool. Remove husks from corn scrub silks from corn. Cut kernels from ears of corn discard cobs.
Reserve 4 whole lettuce leaves. Chop remaining lettuce to measure 4 cups. Combine chopped lettuce, avocado mixture, corn, and radishes. Spoon lettuce mixture into lettuce leaves. Serve with Avocado-Herb Dressing.
20 Radish Recipes That Go Beyond Salads
The diversity of radishes is remarkable, and a trip to the farmers’ market reveals their rainbow potential. In the spring and summer growing season, the spicy bulb can be found in shades of white, purple, pink, black, and green (the watermelon radish is pale green on the outside and a deep magenta within), and in shapes that range from stout and bulbous to long and thin like a delicate icicle. They also vary widely in heat, from mild and slightly sweet to almost painfully peppery.
The easiest thing to do with radishes is to take a baguette, spread it with good quality butter, and layer raw, thinly sliced radishes on top. Sprinkle with salt to taste and you’re done: it’s a surefire snack for yourself, or the easiest appetizer that you can serve at holiday parties. Or, just spread the butter and salt directly on the radishes themselves, eliminating the baguette altogether.
Or go beyond butter and use the vegetable in a myriad of raw or cooked dishes. Try radishes sliced or shredded into salads, fermented into pickles, or cooked into stews, soups, and braises—you can’t go wrong.

Quick Pickled Cucumber Radish Herb Salad
A recipe for a quick pickled radish and cucumber salad with fresh herbs: a light side dish perfect for a heavier main course.
This recipe for fresh quick pickles happened on accident. We had just purchased a mandollin and were testing it out while doing two different recipe photo shoots. So this healthy salad recipe actually came about because I was trying to clean up the kitchen. This fresh side dish uses spring vegetables, cucumber, radish and watermelon radish paired with fresh dill and mint to make a quick pickled salad.
But don't think of this as "pickles" in the traditional pickle from cucumber for hamburgers pickle. This is a crisp, crunchy fresh produce salad that cuts through heavier main courses. Like this as a side with chicken tossed in a BBQ sauce? Awesome. This with curried chickepeas? I can vouch: also awesome. Anything where you're craving a lighter balance, this recipe is nice to have in your fridge, ready to go.
In case you're curious, and because a nice lady at the grocery asked me this question: watermelon radishes do not taste like watermelon. They are named because when they're cut open, they look like the green rind and pink inside of a traditional watermelon. I personally find them to be more mild and less peppery than traditional radishes (also used here). I'm using them for aesthetic reasons, but also because I think this salad benefits from a larger produce item in the mix of small rounds.
I also want to touch on the methodology for this recipe. I do not recommend making this unless you have a mandolin. It's a piece of equipment that you use to thinly slice items. Thin slices are essential for making this recipe crave worthy. If you're hand slicing with a knife, you're likely making these rounds too thick and the light quick pickle won't work. Or, if you are slicing them thinly enough by hand, you're going to get REAL tired of cutting REAL quick. And nothing tastes good when you're pissed off. I mentioned this in the curried chickpea recipe that also has a quick pickle side dish, but this is the mandolin we use and I highly recommend it. It's very sturdy and easy to use.
