After getting my hands on a bunch of fresh radishes, I went on the lookout for a light and fresh radish salad recipe that was sweet enough to take the bitterness out of the radishes, but not be high in Weight Watchers Points.
Sunny Anderson from Food Network had a great one, so I used that as my guideline and altered her original version a bit. It turned out really, really good! My 1 year old daughter ate a ton of it! It’s so fresh and summery tasting, and each serving has just 1 Point.
It took me some extra time to julienne all of those little radishes, but the smaller pieces allowed fore more of the sweet and tangy dressing to be absorbed. This helped get rid of the bitter taste of the radish. However, if you don’t mind that taste, then I’d suggest chopping your radishes into wedges if you want a quicker prep time.
But this Radish Salad Recipe is a great side to your favorite summer meal or picnic. Enjoy!
