For every 100 grams of red radishes, you will get 3.4 grams of carbs, 1.6 grams of dietary fiber, and 1.9 grams of natural sugar.

Best of all, only 16 calories and if you are on a keto diet and minus the fiber content your net carbs are even lower.

Radishes nutrition: 3.4g-1.6g=1.8 grams net carbs per 100 grams.

All About Radishes

What are red radishes?

The radish is an edible root vegetable of the Brassicaceae family that was domesticated in Europe in pre-Roman times.

Radishes are grown and consumed throughout the world, being mostly eaten raw as a crunchy salad vegetable.- Wikipedia

Red radishes are high in fiber, Vitamin C, and low in calories and carbohydrates, and in season during the spring and summer months.

If you’d never had red radish before they are round or oval, 1-5 inches in diameter with a crunchy white flesh and a spicy undertone that quickly goes away.

The common red radishes we find at the grocery store have long been popular sliced to go inside a garden salad, raw on a vegetable platter with dip, or cooked in various recipes.

If you’ve never tried cream of radish soup it’s not only flavourful but certainly, a frugal meal that stretches your grocery budget.

Red radish benefits also attribute to weight loss since it is a vegetable that is low in carbs, which makes it ideal for those on a keto diet.

Radish leaves also known as radish greens are nutritious and perfect sautéed with some olive oil and garlic, tossed in salads or used in any other way that you enjoy greens.

Like most greens, radish greens don’t last long so it’s best to use them right away to avoid food waste.

Simply wash the radish greens once harvested and store up to 2 days max in the crisper.

A small bag of red radishes lasts us about a week and we take them as needed, clean, and use them.

How to make Keto Radish Potato Salad

If you’ve made classic potato salad before then you do the exact same thing except you sub in boiled and chilled red radishes for your potatoes.

It’s really that easy. I’ve chosen to add all the delicious flavours of a traditional potato salad plus a bit of red cabbage for crunch.

Wash and clean your radishes by chopping off the end bits which can get gritty and boil them just until tender then run under cold water.

You may be wondering what they will look and taste like once you’ve boiled them and the answer is, a bit different.

The red colour is hardly noticed and the peppery taste is slight with no crunch obviously making radishes the perfect alternative for potatoes for a low-carb diet.

If you don’t want to boil the radishes you can poach them instead to eliminate excess water getting into the radish but we found them to be perfect this way too.

Get Creative With Your Potato Radish Salad

Once the radishes are chilled in the refrigerator you can start to add all of your radish potato salad ingredients and you’re done.

Some people like a warm radish potato salad and you can do that as well by not refrigerating the radishes and adding the ingredients while they are warm.

We like to refrigerate our radish potato salad for an additional hour to chill and let the ingredients come together.

You don’t have to do this but it’s our preference.

That’s it…how easy is that?

Let’s get cooking!
