A nice and refreshing easy side dish or appetizer from India. No cooking involved in this one. It can be even eaten as a snack. If you have black salt, substitute it for the regular salt. Tastes better with nice fresh young radishes, not old bitter or overly spicy ones.


  1. Clean and coarsely chop radishes and put in bowl.
  2. Squeeze lemon juice on the radishes and stir, so each radish chunk gets coated in juice.
  3. Sprinkle on salt to taste and stir.
  4. Serve.

I very rarely give low-star reviews but for this recipe...well, I really wanted to like this salad because it was so simple, but it just didn't work for us. DH and I both agreed that the lemon overpowered the radishes or cancelled out the radishes - there just wasn't much flavor for whatever reason. This just seemed to need a little something else to make it pop. I tend to agree that some thinly sliced onion might bring up the flavor a notch or two. We did have leftovers so I will add some onion to it and see how that works out. Thanks for posting - made for ZWT8 and the Herbaceous Curvaceous Honeys.

We made this for ZWT8. I think diced Vidalia onions would be a good addition to this salad, along with an hour or so of marinating time in the refrigerator.
