black and white radish julienneWhite radish or black radish are ideal to make fresh salades. The taste is soft, so you can use a lot of these vegetables in your salade. You may use the long shaped radish (not the round ones), so you can produce long strings instead of short ones.

My favorite julienne black radish dish is quick and simple. Take your julienne peeler and make a pile of julienne. Spread them out on a backing tray and drizzle some extra virgin oil over the vegetables. Sprinkle coarse salt and pepper to taste over the vegetables.
