You can actually carve radish into all kind of shapes and we already covered that here in this article. But If you’re looking for a simple and elegant way to jazz up your salads this summer, look no further than the radish rosette. Here’s how you can make your own radish rosettes at home.

What You’ll Need

• 1 bunch of radishes (about 12-15), washed and dried;
• 1 tbsp. white vinegar;
• 1 tsp. sugar;
• 1/2 tsp. salt;
• Fresh parsley or chives for garnish (optional);

Step One

Thinly slice the radishes using a mandoline slicer or a sharp knife. If you’re using a knife, cut the radishes into thin rounds first, and then slice those rounds into thin strips. The thinner the better!

Step Two

In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, sugar, and salt until the sugar has dissolved completely.

Step Three

Place the sliced radishes in a large bowl and pour the vinegar mixture over top. Allow the radishes to sit in the mixture for at least 20 minutes so they can absorb all of that delicious flavor.

Step Four

To assemble the rosettes, start by placing one strip of radish in the center of your plate or bowl. Then, begin arranging the other strips around it in a circular pattern until you have reached your desired size/look. Garnish with fresh parsley or chives if desired and enjoy immediately!

It depends on the size of your radishes and the size of your rosettes, but you could probably make between 4 and 8 rosettes out of a single bunch of radishes.

Radishes are not only a delicious and healthy addition to any meal, but their attractive appearance can also help to make a dish more visually appealing. One way to show off the natural beauty of radishes is to create elegant rosettes out of them. To do this, simply slice the radishes thinly and then arrange the slices in a circular pattern on the plate. The result is a colorful and eye-catching decoration that will add both flavor and visual interest to any dish.

One way to create a very simple rosette is to start by cutting a thin slice off the bottom of the radish so that it will sit flat. Then, make thin slices around the circumference of the radish, stopping about halfway up the sides. Finally, carefully manipulate the slices so that they fan outwards to create a beautiful floral design. Radishes can also be cut into other shapes, such as stars or leaves, and used to decorate salads or other dishes. With a little creativity, radishes can add both flavor and visual appeal to any dish.

Hi. My name is Ben and I like to talk about radish. I also grow them and cook them. I like to try different species and experiment with various recipes. Right now my favorite is black radish, but I also recommend you to check out the watermelon radish which should be much more popular in my opinion. Stick around, and you'll discover that radishes aren't just your average summer salad addition!
