Roasted Radish & Potato Salad

Print Email

About radishes...I just love them. Roasting them brings on a whole different flavor that pairs so well with potatoes. We loved this salad. It's rustic, it's different and has a nice tangy vinaigrette. What's nice is using the radish greens in this salad, as they are completely edible. Just remember to wash them well as they can be sandy and full of grit. This is a beautiful side dish for a Spring meal and something different!
