I’ve been trying to come up with a recipe using radishes for the Beet n’ Squash U recipe challenge for about a month now and I’ve been having a hard time. I tried making a creamy radish salad dressing, it tasted good but it looked like Pepto-Bismol. I then tried roasting the radishes which was good but not great. The other night I was making fajitas and wanted a side dish. I started thinking that radishes are used in a lot of South American cuisines and so are avocados, and hey I have a grapefruit on the counter; let’s mix them all together.
Happily it worked out very well! I really like the different textures and all the bright colors and flavors. This works great as a side dish with fajitas, it’s also great on top of grilled chicken or mixed with some cooked lentils.
2 Large radishes, or 3 small, thinly sliced
2 Grapefruit, supremed/segmented (see my recipe for oranges with red wine syrup for instructions on how to supreme citrus fruit)
1 Avocado, diced
Dash of Cayenne pepper
A little salt and pepper
Toss all together and serve immediately.
