If you like radishes, you'll LOVE this radish salad recipe! It uses them two ways - roasted and raw - and has a bright radish green pesto on top. Because there aren't any tender greens here, this salad is perfect for making ahead. Just save the mint to add at the last minute!


  • 1 1/2 cups cooked navy beans, drained & rinsed
  • ¼ cup Lemon Vinaigrette
  • 9 roasted radishes, halved or quartered
  • 2-3 thinly sliced red radishes
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1/4 cup Radish Green Pesto, (or any pesto)
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons shaved pecorino or Parmesan, optional
  • Additional lemon juice, optional
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • In a medium bowl, toss the beans with 2 tablespoons of the Lemon Vinaigrette.
  • Assemble the salad on a platter with the beans, roasted radishes, sliced raw radishes, pine nuts, capers, and dollops of pesto.
  • Drizzle with remaining dressing and top with fresh mint and pecorino, if using. Season to taste with more salt and pepper and extra squeezes of lemon, if desired.
