Rad Radish Salad

Rad Radish Salad | ChopChop


Think you hate radishes? Think again.

Radishes: they’re root vegetables in the cabbage family, and they can taste strong or even really spicy. Does that mean you have to hate them? Of course not! They’re gorgeous, super-crunchy, and even, when you get past the spiciness, quite sweet. 

Here's the fab salad Grover and Sam put together: a little crunchy, a little spicy, a little sweet, a lot delicious. 

Hands-on time: 20 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
Makes: 4 Servings

Kitchen Gear: 

Measuring cup
Cutting board
Sharp knife (adult needed)
Measuring spoons
Large bowl


3 cups
spring mix salad greens
to 4 radishes, thinly sliced
small orange or tangerine, peeled, seeded, and thinly sliced
cucumber peeled or washed well, and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon
olive oil
2 teaspoons
fresh lemon juice
1⁄2 teaspoon


Wash your hands with soap and water, then gather all your kitchen gear and ingredients and put them on a clean counter.

  1. Put the spring mix, radishes, orange or tangerine, and cucumber in the large bowl and toss well. (“toss” means to mix together lightly.)
  2. Add the olive oil, lemon juice, and salt and toss again.
  3. Serve right away.


Did you know? Radishes can be white, red, or purple, round or carrot-shaped. There's even a multi-colored radish called an Easter Egg radish!
