It would seem that radishes, like kale, have finally shed their “daggy” image and are being embraced by chefs in restaurants all over the country. Their refreshing crunch, peppery bite and pretty appearance when sliced thinly into discs makes them a popular addition to salads and as a garnish for seafood and chicken dishes.

Small breakfast radishes are delicious dipped in soft butter and sprinkled with sea salt.

Long, white Japanese radishes called daikon make the perfect accompaniment when shredded and served with thinly sliced just caught raw fish.

Radishes can be grown from seed; they’re fast growing, and are relatively pest resistant.

Radishes go with:

- seafood

- butter

- cheese

- grains

- salad leaves

- vinegar

- lemon

- onions
