Lebanese radish salad

    25 min

    Gorgeous Levantine flavours pepper this simple salad. Crunchy radish slices are combined with toasted walnuts, lemon juice, honey and fresh mint. Satisfying and somehow greater than the sum of its parts. It is prettiest when served immediately.

    Refreshing and delicious!!  -  07 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was good, but I felt like something was missing...maybe some thinly sliced onion or something? I also think that this needed more lemon juice than called for, but that's my personal preference. I did use dried mint (I dried my fresh mint from the garden last year), but that was my only change. We love radishes and this was a nice, new way to enjoy them. I may try this again and tweak a few things. Thanks for sharing.  -  09 Mar 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I'm not a fan of radishes in general and this recipe made them not only edible, but delicious! I read the recipe wrong and accidentally used 2 tablespoons of lemon juice so I upped the honey to 1/2 tablespoon and the result is fantastic. The combination of ingredients really cuts the spice and potency of radishes.  -  20 Jul 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
