Orange and Radish Salad is my adaptation of a salad recipe I found on an Egyptian tourist website. This salad has a complexity of flavors, freshness from the oranges, and a bit of heat from the warm spices and radishes. This is a refreshing low-calorie salad that is sure to please everyone you serve it to. This salad makes a wonderful compliment to Grilled Halibut.
I substituted the beautiful watermelon radishes in this salad. The watermelon radish is a winter radish that grows particularly well when the weather gets cooler. It has many alternate names, such as Beauty Heart, Rose Heart, Shinrimei, Misato, Asian Red Meat, or Xin Li Mei radish. It is an heirloom variety of the Chinese daikon. I grew mine in the Spring, and they have a little heat to them. It is almost white on the outside with a beautiful pink interior. The watermelon radishes will wow you!
When buying them, choose radishes that feel heavy for their size. They should be firm and without blemishes. Store them in a plastic bag or container in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator for up to a few weeks.
