Radish

Half a cup of sliced radishes is only 10 calories. They are a good source of vitamin C and contain small amounts of other nutrients such as magnesium, vitamin B6, folic acid, potassium and calcium as well.

How to Select

Choose smooth, brightly colored, medium sized radishes. Attached tops should be green and fresh looking.

How to Store

Refridgerate radishes in a plastic bag for use within one week. Remove tops before storing.

How to Prepare

Wash, then chop off the greens, if present, and slice off the root. Leave whole, slice or chop, as required. Always prepare radishes just before using, as they loose their potency when cut.
