Feel free to use the radish greens in this salad in place of the arugula, as they are edible. Make sure you wash them well as they can very sandy. To turn this salad into a main meal add one or more of the following: chopped hard boiled eggs, tofu cubes, feta or goat cheese crumbles, and some nuts and seeds.

Did you know? The name radish comes from the Latin word ‘radix’ meaning root. Radishes come in a variety of colours – red, rose, purple, lavender and white. The leaves of the radish plant actually contain more Vitamin C, protein and calcium than their roots. A half-cup of radishes per day is nearly 15% of your daily intake of Vitamin-C.
