Creamy Radish Salad Recipes With Health Benefits

Radishes thrive in springtime and offer a lot of vitamins and minerals. Radishes are a good source of vitamin C, just 1/2 cup offers about 14 % of your recommended daily allowance.

They’re also low in carbohydrates but very high in fiber, potassium, calcium and magnesium. Red radishes are packed with Vitamins E, A, C, B6, and K, therefore is best to eat them raw in a salad.

If you want all the wonderful benefits the radishes provide, try the following radish salad recipes, all made with 3 different homemade creamy dressings:

1. Radish Salad With Fennel And Bell Pepper

Radish salad with fennel and bell pepper (vegan, gluten free, dairy free) accompanied with a creamy dairy free homemade dressing. This healthy radish salad is made with whole fresh organic ingredients, suitable for whole 30, vegan, paleo and clean eating anti-inflammatory diets.

This crunchy, radish salad has thinly sliced vegetables and a good dose of healthy, creamy seed based dressing. This composition makes this salad vegan (dairy free), naturally low in fat and gluten free.

Many commercially prepared salad dressings are high in fat, salt, and sugar also made with soybean oil, canola oil, safflower oil that influence inflammation in our body.

When we prepare our own, we know exactly which ingredients and how much of each are going into it. That’s why I’m always making my own salad dressings. They’re nice and creamy and packed with anti-inflammatory ingredients. See full recipe below in recipe card.

2. Cucumber Radish Salad

This crunchy summer salad is based off of a classic creamy cucumber salad, except it doesn’t have any dairy ingredients.

My version of cucumber radish salad is dressed in a creamy, vegan, dairy free, gluten free dressing made with avocado and flavored with fresh dill.

I used an adjustable mandoline slicer to cut the cucumbers and radishes. You can do it by hand if you want, but the mandoline makes the process much faster and cuts the vegetables uniformly.

How long it keeps? Unfortunately, cucumber salad is one of those dishes that do not keep well due to water release from veggies and you can only make a couple of hours ahead of time, and mix in the dressing just before serving.

3. Radish Salad With Dandelions And Egg

Radish Dandelion And Egg Salad.

Next radish salad recipe it’s actually pretty easy to make and is also served with a dairy free, creamy anti-inflammatory dressing. Sometimes simple, healthy substitutions, can take your salad dressing from being pro-inflammatory to anti-inflammatory.

Adding turmeric gives it a vibrant color while adding to the anti-inflammatory benefits. And using apple cider vinegar instead of balsamic helps to stimulate proper digestion and assimilation of all the beneficial nutrients in the salad.

What about dandelions? Did you know that one cup of chopped raw dandelion greens provide 112% DV of Vitamin A and 535% DV of Vitamin K! They also have a very high amount of calcium and iron, actually more than most popular greens!

The dandelion’s slight bitterness increases bile production, improves liver function and removes toxins. Moreover, it is considered an anti-diabetic plant, you can read more about it’s studied effects, here.

Tip For Making A Tasty Creamy Radish Salad

If you wonder how to make radish salads tasty and healthy? Thinly slice the radishes instead of quartering and give them a good coat of creamy dressing. The dressing will camouflage the slight pungent flavor of radishes and enhances their true flavor and sweetness.
