If you have never seen watermelon radishes before, you might think that they aren’t real. How mother nature managed to make this combo of radiant pink and green colors appear in a radish… a real mystery! Festive and mild, this radish will truly make your crudités platter pop.

Super Quick Pickle:
Using a sharp knife or mandoline, thinly slice your watermelon radishes crosswise into discs, then stack the discs and slice them into thin strips. Place strips in a small bowl, sprinkle with a pinch of salt, a pinch of sugar, and a splash of vinegar. Toss to coat, then set aside. After 15 minutes, the radish strips should have released some liquid and should be somewhat limp. Toss again, then transfer to a serving bowl, leaving any remaining liquid behind.

For Storage:
Seal them in a plastic bag and these babies can last for a couple weeks without a problem!
