Cook your radishes and cooking radish greens? Oh yes, it can be done. Radishes are not just for salads! This crunchy peppery vegetable transforms into tender-crisp bites and combine with their gently wilted greens for a colorful summer side dish. Sauteed radishes will soon become your new summer obsession!
My radishes today are a beautiful deep red but they also come in white, purple and even black! Mine are plump and round but could also be long and cylindrical. With summer in full swing radishes are abundant at farm stands and farmers markets.
All types are fabulous served raw adding crunch and zing in salads but can also be pickled, and yes, just like my Sauteed Sesame Ginger Radishes, even cooked!
