Radishes are an edible root vegetable. Although the bulb is the most commonly consumed part of the vegetable, their leaves may also be served as a sautéed side dish. In this recipe, the bulb root is sliced and tossed with sliced onion, mustard, honey, sugar, oil and vinegar to make a crunchy slaw. Try it as an alternative to a lettuce salad.

1 red onion
1 bunch radishes
4 tsp. rice vinegar
1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1/2 tsp. sesame oil
8 ounces thinly sliced snow peas


  1. Thinly slice red onion and radishes.
  2. Soak in ice water, 5 minutes; drain and pat dry.
  3. Whisk rice vinegar, Dijon mustard, and sugar in a bowl.
  4. Whisk in vegetable oil and sesame oil
  5. Add thinly sliced snow peas, onion and radishes.
  6. Season with salt.

  •  You may be tempted to add pepper to this salad – don’t do it! Radishes already have a peppery taste.
