Psychedelic Salad

Posted in Garden Diary by Jane Griffiths on the June 22nd, 2018

The watermelon radish has to be one of the most striking vegetables I have ever seen. Tonight I made a salad of watercress, sliced watermelon radish and papaya. I served it with thin slices of ribeye steak drizzled with a dressing of olive oil, lemon juice, roast cumin seeds, five spice powder, sugar, salt and pepper. 

Most Deeelicious. 

Watermelon radish are an heirloom variety of daikon radish. They are as easy to grow as normal radishes, but take a bit longer to mature. They are super crisp with a mild peppery sweet flavour.
