Refreshing and Cleansing Radish Salad

Refreshing and Cleansing Radish Salad

This cookbook author’s filmmaker fiance (of Supersize Me fame) suffered terrible ill effects from eating fast food for a month, so she devised this and other recipes to detoxify his system and bring him back to fitness.

Even if you are already in the pink of health, you will feel the goodness of this crunchy, tasty salad. There is more to it than radishes: Apples, carrot and citrus all add to the lively flavors and health benefits. Read the refreshing recipe here.


2 cups peeled and thinly sliced daikon radishes
1 cup thinly sliced green apple, sliced into half-moons
1/3 cup grated carrot
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion, sliced into half-moons
1 red radish, grated
1/4 cup freshly-squeezed orange juice
2 teaspoons brown rice syrup or maple syrup
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon sea salt
10 leaves fresh mint and cilantro (optional)

1. Combine daikon, apple, carrot, onion, and red radish in a large mixing bowl.

2. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the orange juice, rice syrup, lime juice, and salt.

3. Pour the liquid over the vegetables and toss well to combine. Garnish with mint and cilantro, if desired, and serve.

Serves 4 to 6.
