Updated: Aug 14

When you're looking for a colorful spring salad, radishes never let you down. Pair with other bright vegetables like golden beets, carrots, or purple cabbage for a fresh side that's a feast for the eyes and a balm for the winter-weary soul. Serve with something creamy and herbaceous like the cilantro-based dressing below.

Spring Radish Salad with Golden Beets and Creamy Cilantro Dressing

by Beth Short-Rhoads

Serves 4 to 6


10 ounces (about 10 cups) baby spinach

8 radishes, thinly sliced

1 medium golden beet, peeled and thinly sliced


CREAMY CILANTRO DRESSING (makes about 3/4 cup)

2 tablespoons apple cider or white wine vinegar 1 1/2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted and ground

1 small clove garlic

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon sugar

1/3 cup full fat Greek yogurt

1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 bunch cilantro, roughly chopped


In a salad bowl, arrange the spinach, radishes, and golden beet so that the pinks and yellows are prominently displayed. To make the dressing, add the vinegar through yogurt to a food processor and blend until well-combined. Drizzle in the olive oil to emulsify. Add the cilantro and blend again, processing until the dressing turns green and the leaves are in tiny pieces.
