Radishes in food

Radishes are foods that are very digestible, although they have to be chewed well. Only in certain very sensitive people it produces assimilation problems causing flatulence. In general, they are a bit spicy to taste, but if we let them cool in the fridge, they lose this property. Among the main recipes with radishes we have:

Red radish salad with onion for 4 people


  • Peel the onion and wash all the ingredients well.
  • Place the chopped lettuce as a base.
  • Cut the onion and radishes into thin rings, saving a radish for the final decoration.
  • Place a layer of onion rings on the lettuce.
  • We will form an outer circle with the slices of radishes.
  • We will cut the remaining radish in the form of petals and place it in the center. We will dress it with a tablespoon of oil, another of vinegar and a pinch of salt
  • A tablespoon of sesame seeds can be sprinkled on top.
