Let’s Make It!
Before you begin prepping your ingredients set your oven to 400˚F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then prep this recipe is 3 simple steps, just prep, roast and dress this tasty salad!
- Prep: Wash and cut radishes in into bite size pieces. Chop pickles, celery and hard boiled eggs, slice green onions sliced, and crumble cooked bacon.
- Roast: Toss the radishes with the olive oil and seasonings and roast them about 30 minutes. Roasted radishes should be firm, not mushy. Allow to cool.

How Long Will It Last?
Just like a potato salad, radish salad will last about a week if it stays covered in the refrigerator. To refresh it, simply give it a stir and add a little salt and pepper to bring back the zing!
Can You Freeze Radishes?
Radishes can be frozen, but due to their high-water content, once they are thawed they won’t be as crunchy. But they are perfect to keep on hand to add to soups in the cool winter months, like this tasty Beef Soup with Radishes.
The best way to freeze radishes is to:
- keep the skin on the radishes intact and cut them in half.
- blanch the halves in boiling water about 2 or 3 minutes and then submerge them into ice water.
- dry and place them in a freezer bag labelled with the date and then put them in the freezer!
Freezing radishes is super easy, so go ahead and stock up on summer’s bounty!
