G’day lovelies, logging in with pretty pics and pretty food this morning!

I love simple salads and I need them in my life, especially ones like this easy radish salad recipe and I will tell you for why.

Bottom line I am a tad on the lazy side and somehow my brain seems unable to handle anything that is too complicated…it happened when nappy brain occurred and never went away.

So simple salads are the way to go for me, one veggie is how I like it the best, dressed with easy everyday ingredients and a few herbs.

I think I have rambled on here before about a trip to France and a stop in a restaurant where the first course was a few lettuce leaves and the most amazing vinaigrette I have ever tasted in my life and have yet to taste since….it made me change my view on salad for like ever.


This requires nothing more than a big old bunch of radishes and even if you think that you could never eat a big old bunch of radishes I think you might be surprised with this little beauty in your life.



When I first came across this slicing of radishes and not much else I thought it sounded wonderful but what about the Beach Cottage Crew and the distinctive tang of radish and not much else?  Not so much, I knew it would not work for them.

So I fiddled around a bit, tried a couple of other recipes from the internet, most seem to include cucumber which didn’t really cut the mustard with me, found some that involved Italian dressing from a bottle…but now have settled on this…


This is just light and fresh and easy and lovely…it pairs up very nicely with some roast meat or indeed on the side of the big open sandwiches we often have the day after roasted meat…

2. add radishes, season and mix

  1. Love the radish, love the bowl, love the colander….thanks for this one Sarah!! xx

  2. I’m not a fan of radishes, but seeing this salad reminds me of a cucumber salad that I love, and your radish salad sounds very similar!

    I have a boy whose lately been developing a few “aversions” – he is certainly old enough to know better as I have countless times explained that I am not a restaurant ( every effort is made to please however if you dont particularly like tonights menu there’s always tomorrow…) and I dont go in for over fussiness.

    He’s a bit quirky and I can imagine this radish salad might play to his nature perfectly – will give it a go tonight and see – could be on a winner here fingers crossed xx

  4. I was just looking at the radishes in the garden and wondering what possessed me to plant them…no I know why! Thanks, looks like a winner.

    I haven’t really tried radishes I’ve always been a bit unsure what to do with them- this looks great so I might have to give them a go:)

    Thanks for the recipe sharing- I love fuss free recipes!

    Thanks for the ongoing salad inspirations.

    BTW. I cooked potatoes and some pumpkin pieces in my slow cooker last night using the info from one of your other posts. Two thumbs up! Even from Mr alison.

    From one Sarah to another: If one does not wish to eat dairy, it’s possible to take raw cashews, soak them a bit in water, drain, put in the high speed blender with a bit of water and celtic salt and fresh lemon juice and — voila — raw vegan sour cream for your radish salad! Enjoy:) (p.s. – i make raw radish salad with just some celtic salt and fresh lemon juice – it somehow makes the radishes sweet – and i plan to try your version – but with the vegan sour cream!
