This is a variation on a salad I originally made with tomatoes. I decided to give it a whirl with crunchy radishes instead, and fell in love with the results. It's a spicy, sweet, tangy, and salty explosion of flavors! —fiveandspice

  • Serves 4
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • salt to taste
  • 2 cups radishes, washed and roughly chopped
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
In This Recipe
  1. In a small saucepan, bring the orange juice to a boil and cook it until it is reduced to about 1/4 cup (about 20-25 minutes). Take off the heat.
  2. Whisk the olive oil, and curry powder into the orange juice. Add salt to taste. Toss the chopped radishes with the dressing.
  3. Divide the radishes between 4 plates. Top with the feta cheese and chopped mint.

I like to say I'm a lazy iron chef (I just cook with what I have around), renegade nutritionist, food policy wonk, and inveterate butter and cream enthusiast! My husband and I own a craft distillery in Northern Minnesota called Vikre Distillery (www.vikredistillery.com), where I claimed the title, "arbiter of taste." I also have a doctorate in food policy, for which I studied the changes in diet and health of new immigrants after they come to the United States. I myself am a Norwegian-American dual citizen. So I have a lot of Scandinavian pride, which especially shines through in my cooking on special holidays. Beyond loving all facets of food, I'm a Renaissance woman (translation: bad at focusing), dabbling in a variety of artistic and scientific endeavors.

    I made this new year's eve and frankly, I was really skeptical! But it was delicious and I will make it again. I think you could also adopt the sauce to a number of other things. Thanks for the treat!

    Yum! I love the idea of dressing radish with citrus and curry but.... I don’t have OJ 😞 during these quarantine times, I’m thinking of trying a riff on this with a bit of lemon juice instead, and maybe some maple to replicate the sweetness of orange. Please let me know if anyone’s tried an alternative!

    Oh my goodness, this was off-the-charts DELICIOUS!!!! I had to restrain myself from eating the entire batch, but I've left some for tomorrow's lunch. Now I know exactly what to do with fabulous fall radishes.
