Roasted Radish Salad with Crème Fraîche Dressing

This roasted radish salad with a crème fraîche dressing is a wonderful springtime recipe with exciting flavors!

I know you might be skeptical of roasted radishes, but I think you’ll just love them. Radishes roast quickly (10 minutes!), become very juicy and are much mellower than in their crunchy form. Another unexpected treat is that roasted radishes develop a beautiful, deep pink color.

Tips for Making this Roasted Radish Salad

Be careful to serve this salad quickly though (or at least roast the radishes right before serving), as they pale the longer they hang around. When testing this recipe, I roasted a dozen radishes and then put them in the fridge over night - they did not taste nearly as good and the color wilted.
