My info: 5 Ravishing Radish Recipes for Spring, by sheriwetherell

Roasted Radishes

Though they're available year-round radishes are at their delicious peak in spring. These juicy, pungent, and sometimes sweet little root vegetables come in a rainbow of colors - red, white, purple, black - and are wonderful eaten raw, roasted, pickled, simmered. Even the stems and leaves are edible. Radishes, in all their colorful glory, offer a bevy of health benefits as well. They're a powerful detoxifier (hey, we can spring clean our bodies too!), are good for the stomach, liver, skin, cardiovascular system, and more. They're also high in fiber, making it a great diet food (swimsuit season is around the corner!).

Toss radishes in a bit of olive oil and a sprinkle of good salt and roast them, along with their stems and leaves, for a simple and tasty side dish. For a quick and delicious snack or appetizer, slice up a baguette, smear each piece with a bit of anchovy butter and top with thinly sliced radishes (watermelon radishes make the prettiest presentation!), and some finely chopped chives if you like. Layer rings of rice (doughnut-style) with colorful fruits and vegetables like mango, radishes, purple cabbage, carrots, avocado, and green onion for a fun vegetarian take on sushi. Toss radishes, shrimp, and peas with a creamy herb yogurt dressing, or fill a bowl full of tender m√Ęche and sweet Romaine lettuces then top with a garden full of springtime vegetables like asparagus, peas, and radishes.  Get these delicious recipes from our community members below.
