Don’t Toss Those Radish Greens!
On a recent episode of Iron Chef America – Battle Radish! – it was mentioned that the greens are possibly the best part of this vegetable. We were surprised to hear this; we’ve always just chucked the tops into the compost! Since then, we’ve corrected our ways and given the peppery leaves a try.
Radish tops don’t stay fresh for very long, and it’s best separate them from the roots soon after harvesting or bringing them home from the market. Wash and store the leaves like other salad greens and eat them within a day or two.
