It’s not like you have to have a spiralizer to make pretty salads, but it sure does help. And it’s fast and easy. This spiralized radish salad took only minutes to make. It tastes very much like a slaw, with a great radish crunch and a perfect citrus vinaigrette. Radishes hold up really great over time, unless traditional salads or slaws that start to look a little bit ‘sad’ after a day or too. And the radishes keep their crunchiness day after day, and that’s a big win too!
This was my first time spiralizing radishes. I was afraid it wasn’t going to work, but they came out perfectly. First, you have to start with big radishes. No wimpy long thin ones. Second, you need to make a shallow cut down each radish. If you don’t you’ll end up with one really long radish spiral that goes on and on and on. Then, just cut off the ends, insert into your spiralizer, and get to turning!
Make extra spiral radishes and keep them in your refrigerator. They make for excellent snacks and they’re much healthier than most things you’d find in a bag!
