Apple Radish Slaw with Honey Lime Jalapeno Vinaigrette

I don’t want to jinx myself but I think it is safe to say that grilling season has finally arrived! After a ridiculously long winter, I am thrilled to be reunited with warm breezes and the sweet smell of dinner cooking on the grill. Radish season has not quite begun here so I was pretty excited when my friends at Dandy Produce asked me to create a recipe with their crunchy and delicious Radish MiniSticks.

Does your family enjoy radishes? Not only do they add great texture and crunch to many dishes but they are loaded in heath benefits.

Why are radishes good for you?

Detoxification: Radishes help naturally detox the body removing fat from the liver and detoxifying the bloodstream.

Regulate Blood Pressure: Potassium from radishes helps naturally regulate blood pressure.

Low Calorie: 7 radishes only contain 15 calories but their high water content helps you feel full (similar to watermelon minus the natural sugars.) Great for munching with hummus or other dips
.
Boost Heart Health: Antioxidants found in radishes lower the risk of heart disease and heart attack by reducing cholesterol.

How do you reduce jalapeno heat?

For a mild vinaigrette, remove the seeds from the jalapeño before mincing because that is where the heat lies.

Whether we are firing up turkey burgers, marinated pork chops or chicken souvlaki, I love creating simple and easy dishes to go alongside. Apple Radish Slaw with Honey Lime Jalapeño Vinaigrette delivers a delicate balance of salty-sweet with just the right amount of heat. It is a simple, no-cook side dish that goes perfectly with anything from fish tacos to marinated flank steak to simple grilled chicken breasts.

Your fork is waiting.

    I love this recipe, I have made it many time. I am not one to follow recipes but this one is a keeper. The only change is I double the apples. I always make this to top BBQ pulled pulled pork instead of the traditional coleslaw. It is a healthy alternative for a BBQ as most BBQ recipes are not diet friendly. Thank you so much for posting this recipe years ago, as it is a crowd favorite.

    This looks like a great recipe! What is the yield on this recipe? I need to convert it to feed 225 people. I’m guessing 4 but not sure.

      Yep it’s four!! Great questions!

    I made this as an accompaniment for my mahi mahi tacos last week. Absolutely delicious. I belong to a CSA-type group that supplied about 20 huge crimson radishes, red onion, carrots, apples, jalapenos, cilantro and other things that I needed to use. I substituted red onion for the scallions, a sweet red apple for the granny smith, and cilantro for the mint. Most of my family loved it, and we used it not only for the fish tacos, but steak tacos the following night and chicken tacos two nights later. All gone now and I’m looking forward to making another batch.

    Yummy! So glad to see another use for radishes. I never know what to do with them other than throw them on a salad. We are going to make this to go on our paelo inspired salmon tacos. :)

        We host potluck dinner every Friday for our 4 kids’ soccer teams that my husband coaches. This morning I harvested radishes from our garden and wanted to serve them with pulled pork that the main fare. This slaw was a homerun side dish and stole the show! So glad it popped up in my search!

    I love radishes. They are definitely a salad staple around here. Who knew about all those awesome health benefits! PS you totally jinxed it! The start of the week in Chicago, it was 80. Now it is 50 AND rainy!

    I couldn’t agree more a great way to utilize the peppery radish. And I do like your use of honey in many of your recipes. Btw your lemon tonic sure does the trick for clearing mucous.

    Love the crunch and heat factor in this salad! Grilling season is coming to an end here in the hot Phoenix desert. It has been in the triple stinking digits all week already!

    What a great healthy and light slaw!!! Not a fan of the mayo-y and heavy types… Don’t even know if mayo-y is a word but who cares.. lol

    Love the addition of the apples.. sure they add a sweet and tangy surprise….
