Roasted radish salad

This delicious roasted radish salad will surprise you. Radishes are well-known for the touch of bitterness they add to a meal. Some people like it, others don't. Once roasted, they might just become your family's favourite salad topping. Indeed, cooking radishes makes them milder, which is why this recipe is a good way to rediscover this vegetable. Red summer radishes are also a great source of vitamin C and folate.

Did you know radish tops can be cooked just like spinach? When fresh, all you need to do is clean them and add them to your favourite recipes. To preserve radishes, it is recommended to remove the tops to allow them to retain their moisture.
