Lime Radishes from McClendon's Select: This Week's Fresh Pick

It may not look like a normal radish, but it tastes like a radish kicked up a notch.

Just when you thought watermelon radishes were the pinnacle of heirloom radish weirdness, McClendon's brings lime radishes to the market. With their tubular shape, lime radishes may look more like turnips or parsnips at first glance. However, the spicy, crisp flavor places them easily in the radish category. These bright green root vegetables stand out in the crowd with their coloring, but that kicked-up flavor makes them a stand out in a dish. Plus, its versatility makes it an easy addition to almost any cuisine.

While the obvious application of this radish, both green outside and inside, would be in a salad, incorporating it into a slaw atop street tacos or even with fresh, light Asian fare is the perfect place for a lime radish. When in season, lime radishes can also be juiced to add an extra bite to your favorite juice elixirs. If you're looking to trim down as your New Year's resolution, the vitamin C, fiber, potassium and calcium (among other vitamins and minerals) found in radishes will add a nutrient-packed punch to your meals.
