Watermelon radishes (aka red daikon) are perfect just as they are, not to mention gorgeous! They have a nice crunch and a clean taste with occasional spice. Here are a few simple ways to prepare them:
- As an addition to a lunch or cheese plate, peel the radish then slice it into thin half moons.
- For a salad, peel the radish and grate it thinly.
- For extra pizzazz, quarter and thinly slice the radish. In a glass jar with a lid, mix 1 cup vinegar, one tablespoon sugar, and two teaspoons salt. Add the radish and allow to stand, refrigerated for 2 or more hours. Eat plain, top salads, or serve with appetizers. Radishes will keep for 5–7 days this way.
