Healthy Ingredient of the Week – Radishes

I have to admit, the only time I eat radishes is when they are shredded and put on top of a salad.  That’s a shame, because radishes are extremely low in calories, have a high water content, and are good sources of calcium, potassium, vitamin C, and fiber.  They’re in season right now, so I’m going to make a point to incorporate them into my diet by making them the star of a dish, like the one below. 

Mango-Radish Salsa

3 cups diced mango, (about 2 large)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup diced radishes, (about 1 bunch)


1. Toss mangoes, cilantro, lime juice and salt in a bowl.
2. Stir in radishes just before serving.
