Radi-salat Mit Speck - German Radish Salad With Bacon

Recipe by Molly53
READY IN: 30mins




  • Clean, peel and wash the white radishes.
  • Cut the white radishes into coils with a radish cutter (if you don't have one, just slice them very thinly).
  • Divide the coils into about 4 inch long pieces.
  • Place the short radish coils into a bowl (set some aside and reserve for garnishing if you desire) and sprinkle with salt.
  • Let the radish coils rest for 20- 30 minutes (the salt will draw some juice).
  • In the meantime clean, wash and quarter each of the small red radishes.
  • Wash, dry and chop the dill weed (before chopping the dill weed pull off some sprigs for decorations).
  • Cut the bacon into small cubes or pieces and in a skillet fry the bacon until crunchy and largely drained of its grease; discard grease.
  • Pour the oil and vinegar into the bacon in skillet and bring to a short boil.
  • Remove the skillet from the stove.
  • Pour the radish juice from the white radishes into the skillet to the oil-vinegar-bacon mixture and season with pepper; let mixture cool to warm temperature.
  • Add the red radish wedges to the white radish and combine.
  • Pour the vinaigrette dressing from the skillet over the radishes and let stand until completely cool.
  • Garnish with reserved radish coils and dill weed sprigs.
