WATERMELON RADISHES WITH ORANGE, LEMON, & DILL: Mouth-Watering, Eye-Popping Salad

I swear, just looking at watermelon radishes makes me want to devour them the way I would an actual watermelon. They are so beautiful and vibrant.

The orange and dill in this salad meld well with the spicy radishes, making it a real treat.

Ingredients:
  • watermelon radishes (or any other type of radishes)
  • orange(s), 1 orange per 5 medium radishes
  • lemon, 1/2 lemon per 5 radishes
  • fresh dill, about 3 sprigs per 5 radishes
  • s & p

What to Do:
Wash the radishes. It is not necessary to peel them. Cut the tops and bottoms off of the radishes. Slice them in half, and then julianne into thin strips. Place in a bowl that will allow enough room for stirring. Squeeze in fresh orange juice, enough to cover the radishes. Squeeze in some fresh lemon juice. Chop the dill, and add that into the bowl. Add a few shakes of salt and pepper. Stir, and that's it! Either eat right away, or for best results, allow to sit in the fridge for a few hours, or overnight. If marinating the radishes in the fridge, give them a stir occasionally, so that all of the radish pieces are evenly distributed in the juice.

This salad is such a great snack. It's so healthy and light, yet it is really satisfying. A fresh, sweet, crisp plate of radishes is the perfect fix on a hot, hot day!
