Radish, Orange, and Mint Salad


We got pretty bored with thinly sliced English breakfast radishes on buttered bread, but had no idea what else there was to do with radishes. I typed in 'radishes' on recipezaar.com and was surprised to see a whole bunch of new options. I wasn't sure about this cold salad at first, but it ended up being really interesting. I added honey to the dressing, and it balanced it out nicely. Do y'all have any other ideas for what we should do with radishes next?

I can tell you what not to do. :) Don't steam them and bake them unless you want your house to smell like garbage for a week.

yeah, i added radishes in when making veggie broth once and the whole batch was unusable. that's why radishes are nearly always served cold.

i threw them into a salad with roasted corn and purslane, it was really simple and delicious: http://sweetbeetandgreenbean.net/2009/06/01/roasted-corn-and-purslane-salad-with-a-creamy-dill-dressing/

I get a ton of radishes from my CSA, so I need ways to use them up. We love to grate them and mix in an asian style dressing with soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger & garlic. My husband and I can eat two bunches of radishes this way in one sitting.
