This is not your usual salad - it's unique and delicious:
(I omit the orange blossom water, and use scallions instead of onion)

Here's a canning recipe that can also just be stored in the refrigerator instead.

Radish Relish

3 cups radishes -- stemmed
2 large ribs celery
1 large red onion
2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1 tbl mustard seed
2 tsp dill seed
1/2 tsp celery seed
1 cup vinegar
2 tbls prepared horseradish

Put the radishes, celery and onion through the coarse blade of a grinder, or chop them fiely.

Mix with remaining ingredients and allow to stand three hours. Bring to a boil in a large pan and cook ten minutes. Pour into hot jars, leaving half-inch head space. Adjust lids and process 1/2 pints and pints in a boiling water bath for 20 minutes.
Support bacteria. It's the only culture some people have.

thick slice radishes, saute gently a diced shallot or two in butter, add the radish slices and saute, add about 1/3 cup broth (chicken or veg) and put a lid on, let it simmer about 5-8 min. take lid off and let liquid reduce. Radishes should be "crisp tender" and that wonderful shallot/butter flavor all through them. THe skins give a pink color to it all. Very simple and delish!

season at most with a little salt and pepper and parsley

I buy the largest radishes I can find, and use them anywhere I would use small potatoes or onions........ pot roasts, vegetable blends, anywhere.........

My favorite........

Brussels Sprouts w/ Radishes
serves 2
1 dozen brussels sprouts
8 large radishes
salted water (or chicken broth)
salt and pepper
Trim the stem edge of the sprouts; trim top and bottom edges of radishes.
In a large saucepan, Bring salted water to a boil. immerse the radishes and sprouts.
Cook 10 - 14 minutes, or until the sprouts are done and the radishes begin to lose their color.
Drain, return to saucepan. Add butter or margarine. gently mix the veggies with the melting butter.
Move to a serving dish, season with salt and pepper, and serve.
Be Yourself ! ..... Everyone else is taken !

Slice like chips and use them to dip Hummus

Or use this recipie from Easy Japanese Pickling
Mix 2 Tbsp miso with 1/2 tsp garlic.
Cut off radish tails and cut a deep X into each root.
Stuff X's with miso mixture.
Let stand 30-60 min, keeping leaves away from miso mixture.
