The sweet, crisp, refreshing watermelon radish adds a splash of color to summer salads. Opt for very firm ones with a vibrant sheen to their skin.

Prep: Store up to 5 days in the crisper. To use, wash and trim. Watermelon radishes are excellent sliced thin as a base for canap├ęs or cut into matchsticks in a salad.

Try them in our kimchi-inspired slaw in our Korean-Spiced Pork Chops & Slaw recipe.
