Radish Mango Salad

I’ve made sure to take full advantage of radishes at our co-op, and more recently the farmers market. When I get home, I cut off the radish greens, wash and dry them, and I add the greens in salads or a batch of pesto. The radishes, I wash and store in the crisper in my fridge – they’ll keep for a week, until my next run.

I remember as a kid, my grandmother would eat radishes just with a sprinkle of salt on them. I was curious, and asked if I could try one. And I LOVED it. So simple, but man – I love that peppery bite. Luv and Bugsy don’t quite appreciate radishes yet, but I’m sure they will eventually. *wink*

Radish Mango Salad

The crisp bite of radish is balanced with the sweetness of mango. This salad would be a great side dish or add a protein for a simple, satisfying meal. I love adding Wild Planet wild albacore tuna in extra virgin olive oil to this salad for our lunch.

I should say that mangoes are something to be mindful of for those with autoimmunity. Not only are mangoes high in total sugar, they are also in the poison ivy family. Crazy, right? I personally haven’t had a problem handling or eating mangoes, but I also don’t eat them terribly often anymore because of their sugar load. That is also why there is no honey in this salad’s dressing. Ha!

    The combination of mango with the radish, cucumber, and mint sounds divine! I don’t get mangoes often as they usually aren’t very good where I live, but next time I do I’ll keep this in mind!

    Yes, I’ve noticed some stores around me don’t have a good selection of mangoes. Fortunately our co-op has been pretty consistent with their organic mango quality. I usually grab one that is ready and another that needs a few more days at least when I do buy them :)

    I grew up watching (and joining) my grandma eat radishes dipped in salt too! Lovely looking salad!
