I love fresh sliced radishes on salads (with radish greens too, I've learned the tops are edible too!) but towards the end of the crop I was looking for more creative uses for these seasonal vegetables.
In this country we usually think of radishes as garnish, but there are many cultures (and recipes) out there that use radishes in different ways.
Refrigerator Pickled Radishes
1/2 pound radish- sliced or shredded
1 carrot shredded or diced
1 tablespoon canning salt
1 cup water
1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Wash and slice or shred radishes and carrots. Put in a bowl with water, sprinkle salt and mix well.
Let set, and after 30 min, drain and squeeze dry
Combine vinegar, sugar and red pepper and combine with vegetables in a jar.
Refrigerate overnight. Will keep in the fridge about a month.
A slightly different and quicker version of this would be Radish Salad.
