Radish and spring onion salad
Radish and spring onion salad, what can be better? I didn’t know that this salad may be so delicious until I tried it myself.
After long and cold winter different salads with lots of vitamins are exactly what we all need. Raw winter daikon radish contains isothiocyanate anti-oxidant compound called sulforaphane. Studies suggest that sulforaphane has proven role against prostate, breast, colon and ovarian cancers by virtue of its cancer-cell growth inhibition, and cyto-toxic effects on cancer cells. As this particular white radish is of Asian origin there is a popular Chinese proverb saying: “Eating pungent radish and drinking hot tea, let the starved doctors beg on their knees.”
In addition, radish contains adequate levels of folates, vitamin B-6, riboflavin, thiamin and minerals such as iron, magnesium, copper and calcium.
Radish may be a little bit bitter (not always but sometime), so you can pre-soak it in water and then use in salads.
