Roasted Radish & Potato Salad


Back to the radishes…I just love them.  Roasting them brings on a whole different flavor that pairs so well with potatoes.  We loved this salad.  It’s rustic, it’s different and has a nice tangy vinaigrette.

What’s nice is using the radish greens in this salad, as they are completely edible. Just remember to wash them well as they can be sandy and full of grit.

This is a beautiful side dish for a Spring meal and something different!

Preheat oven to 425o F with a large baking sheet inside.

Toss radishes, potatoes, 2 Tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl to coat.  Transfer mixture to hot baking sheet in oven.  Roast until golden, 20-25 minutes, stirring halfway through roasting. 

In the meantime, wash radish greens in several changes of cold water and spin dry.  For the vinaigrette whisk together vinegar, 3 Tablespoons oil, Dijon, parsley and dill in a bowl until combined; season with salt and pepper.  Stir radish greens into roasted radishes and potatoes and add vinaigrette.

Enjoy it!

    I’ve just recently discovered roasted radishes. They’re really delicious.

    I like them raw, but their applications seem a bit limited sometimes. Knowing that they can be roasted opens up a whole world of new uses for them.

    I’m not a huge radish fan but I have heard that the taste changes if they are roasted. My aunt was growing some in her backyard, I’ll have to see if she has any left.

  7. You come up with the most wonderful recipes! I’ll have to try this. As a kid, I remember my dad making radish sandwiches on rye bread. Spread a little butter on the bread, slice and add the radishes plus a little sprinkle of salt. Mmmm…memories.

    Oh Yum! I just saw the new article on radishes in Bon Appetit, which has me longing for them. This looks simple enough for even the newest of cooks, and oh so healthy.

    how perfectly timely! I bought a cluster of fat pink radishes earlier this week and wasn’t sure what to do with them. Now I can do this! I’ve always been wary of cooking them thinking they’d go all weird and soft, but yours look all crispy and delicious. Love that you also used the radish tops too!

  15. I was just watching Iron Chef last night and the challenge was radishes.

    Your salad looks amazing! Growing up I always just ate them cold tossed in a green salad. I’m finding out now just how versatile the radish actually is. 😉

    Have a wonderful Easter! Glad things are moving right along with your vineyard. I’d love to get out there sometime this summer!
