Radishes for the Ravenous

12 Oct

Something about fall has us craving radishes from the farmer’s market.  In our opinion, radishes are like the unsung heroes of the vegetable world, always in the background, as a garnish or side dish. This tasty romaine salad puts them front and center, and the buttermilk dressing perfectly complements the subtle bitterness of the radishes.

Romaine + Radish Salad Recipe


1 large head of romaine lettuce
1 cup radishes, thinly-sliced
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

Buttermilk + Dill Dressing

1/2 cup low fat buttermilk
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. dried dill weed
1/2 tsp. onion powder
salt and pepper to taste


Combine the romaine lettuce, radishes, and cherry tomatoes in large bowl and toss. For dressing, combine ingredients in a small mixing bowl and whisk vigorously for 30 seconds. Drizzle over salad mix before serving.
