Recipe: Spicy Radish Salad

15 Feb

Veggie burgers tonight with a fun, spicy radish salad based on this recipe from Design Sponge, scaled down for 2 people.  It’s a pretty quick salad that uses up a lot of radishes, if you’re starting to notice that they’re piling up.


  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic total (1 clove for dressing, pulverized, and 2 cloves sliced for infusing the chile oil)
  • 1 t red chile flakes
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • juice of 1/2 tangerine
  • 1/4 cup of grated piave (if you can’t find it, substitute parmesan or a good aged cheddar)
  • 1 bunch of radishes, smaller ones halved, larger ones quartered
  • small handful of basil rough chopped

Pour olive oil in pan over med-low heat, allow oil to get hot add chili flakes and garlic cook 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat, sieve oil and let cool.  Meanwhile turn the garlic into a paste by using a knife and salt.  Put in bowl with citrus juice and some pepper.  Whisk in the oil.  Taste for salt/acid/etc.  Toss dressing with radishes, cheese and basil and serve.
