• 1 bunch of radishes
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp Italian herbs
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 avocado
  • 75 g lamb’s lettuce blend
  • Black sesame seeds for garnish
  • Salt and pepper

Dressing ingredients

  • 1 tbsp pesto
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Did you know that you can roast radishes in the oven? AND that they then lose their characteristic bitter taste? Ideal if you are not a fan of bitterness. But even if you can appreciate that slightly bitter taste, this method is one to try. In fact, roasted radishes taste like a very light potato, which is not surprising since radishes are tubers, just like potatoes. Roast them as a substitute for potatoes or make a salad like this one. Combine the roasted radishes with avocado, lamb's lettuce, and a pesto dressing and you have a deliciously different salad in no time!

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Remove the foliage and top and bottom from the radishes and halve them. Mix them in a bowl with the garlic powder, onion powder, Italian herbs, olive oil, and salt and pepper. Then spread them on the baking tray and roast them in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes until soft and slightly golden brown.
  • In the meantime, mix the ingredients for the dressing. Cut the avocado into slices.
  • Mix half of the pesto dressing through the lettuce and divide the lettuce over 2 plates. Top with the avocado slices and roasted radishes. Garnish with black sesame seeds and serve the rest of the dressing on the side.

Radish has a mild to hot peppery flavour and a crunchy texture. It is often consumed raw in salads, but it also can be pickled, boiled and fried. Even the leaves can be consumed fresh, as salad or cooked in a soup, but they are less popular than the root.
