Watermelon Radish Salad and Hummingbirds

Meet the watermelon radish! It is round and encased in a thin light green skin with a pinkish hue inside. This unusual radish actually resembles its namesake. They come in light red to fuchsia and offers a mild and sweet flavor for a radish. I love the crunch and fresh taste even slightly peppery too at times. They can be prepared like any other radish but this one you can eat raw or in a salad. Just toss it in little rice wine vinegar and sprinkle some black sesame seeds for effects.


You can also sprinkle olive oil, lemon juice and sea salt for a radish carpaccio. 




I carved some flowers and hummingbirds from the same fruit to show you the beautiful colors of the radish.

  19. Your work deserves to be displayed in a museum! I had these radishes recently at a restaurant in Dallas, Samar, they were used in a Lebanese salad, fattoush, sliced extra thin and I thought then they looked extraordinary; of course, that was before I saw what you can do with them!
