      You might use cucumber, chayote or jicama Jeff, something really crunchy. I would even try with apple! Enjoy 😉

    Delicious! I never ate radish tops – this is a wonderful salad. What a great thing to make if you have radishes from your garden.

    My husband and I loved this salad. I didn’t have any radish leaves so just substituted domain I had on hand and added some leftover roast chicken and it made a hearty meal. Delicioso!!!

    I love this salad! So fresh. Devina.
    I have a technical question. I watch your show all the time. You often purée vegetables in a blender. What kind of blend do you use, which brand works so well?? Mine doesn’t liquify very well. Thank you, Gracias. Love your show!!

      Thanks for the kind words Margo, so glad you liked this salad. My blender is a Vitamix, I love it 😉

    This salad was so good. This was a stretch for me and for my husband. He doesn’t like radishes (too much) or cucumbers, and I don’t like sesame oil. But, we made it as directed and it was a success!

      So happy you guys liked it Dana, I think the combination of flavors in this salad makes it really unique 😉

    Do you steam the leaves of the radishes also or just wash them?

    1. Pati Jinich

      Dec 11

      Just wash and dry them Stefanie; it will surprise you how flavorful they are. Enjoy the salad 🙂

    I wasn’t able to get radish leaves, so I substituted them with watercress and arugula for their peppery flavor.

    1. Pati Jinich

      Yum, great idea Eduardo 😉

    Great taste! I couldn’t find any radish leaves and I used mixed greens instead. I will have to try again when I can find radish leaves.
