Red Radish and Grapefruit Salad
If you think radishes are delicious, then this is a salad you have to try. This Tunisian recipe is famous throughout the Maghreb area for mixing the spicy sweetness of radishes with the sourness of grapefruit.
You can serve it as an entry to a composite meal or as a side for hot dishes. Extremely easy to make, red radish and grapefruit salad fits well in any special diet and adds loads of flavor.
- 1 pink grapefruit
- 6-7 red radishes
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1 garlic clove
- ¼ white onion
- 2 tablespoons minced parsley
- Dash of Cajun
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Peel the onion, quarter it, and thinly slice it. Rinse and thinly slice the radishes (if you have a guillotine, the process will be quicker). Rinse, quarter, and de-seed the pepper. Then, slice it into thin strips. Peel the grapefruit and remove the pulp from the skin. Transfer everything to a large salad bowl and mix.
Pour the olive oil into a ramekin. Peel and thinly slice the garlic clove. Add it to the ramekin. Season with Cajun, salt and pepper, to taste. Mix well and pour onto the vegetables in the salad bowl. Add the parsley and mix well.
Transfer to the serving plates or keep refrigerated.
