Radishes – root to leaf

IMG_0765_1

Did you know you can eat the leaves of radishes as well?

Most supermarkets sell radishes by the bunch including the leaves. But why did noone tell me that you could eat the leaves as well? It is such a waste to cut off and throw away almost half of the product when in fact it can easily be added to my salad.

The leaves are much milder than the root and make a great addition to any type of salad.
