Edible Radish Seed Pods Salad

Crunchy. Peppery. Fresh. Delicious. 

Radish fruit/siliqua or seed pods are bursting at this time in our garden and I am using them liberally in my cooking these days.


When we first started growing radish in our home garden, I was not sure what to expect. I love radish but more than that I relish the mildly bitter radish greens. The first time I laid eyes on the radish flowers - beautiful lilac and white ones - I was smitten.



And then, when we let it go to seed, the seed pods were a fantastic discovery.

Crisp spring greens topped with radish seed pods, some toasted unsalted pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds, and a drizzling of Pear Gorgonzola dressing makes a fantastic spring salad.
