Radish greens salad: A bowl of good health!

Savi-Ruchi crossed 250 recipe mark with this post & yet this is my first salad recipe!! Unbelievable but true. Now you know my family's craving for salads :( However I & my sister are an exception. We both love salads. Recently my sis joined me for lunch & we both enjoyed eating salads. I prepared this radish salad & the bowl of salad was over in less than 15mins.

Though the radish leaves are a little bitter & a tad pungent ,they are edible & tasty too. Radish greens are the most nutritious part of the plant

Serves: 3-4 
Preparation Time: 10mins

Tender radish leaves: 2.5 cups, finely chopped
Red onion: 1, medium sized, finely chopped(Around 1/3rd cup)
Cucumber: 1/2 cup (Finely chopped)
Salt: According to taste
Pepper: 1/4 tsp, optional

For the salad dressing:
Olive oil: 1 tsp
Lemon juice: 2 tsp

For garnishing: 
Roasted sesame seeds: 2 tsp

Mix together the raddish leaves, red onion & cucumber & refrigirate.
Just before serving, sprinkle the salt, pepper, olive oil, lemon juice & toss well.
Garnish with roasted sesame seeds & dig in!


  • Go ahead & add other veggies like grated carrots, grated radish or even some grated raw mango!
  • To add crunchiness to the salad, add roasted nuts or sweet corn.
  • There is no hard rule as to what proportion should the veggies be. Throw in whatever you like & enjoy.
