Look for: Radishes that are firm to the touch without cracks, splits or soft spots. If greens are attached, they should be green and fresh looking.
To use: Wash and trim stem ends before slicing or leave a bit of stem to use as a handle when served as a finger food.
Best in: Spring salads and served raw as crudités. Radishes can also be sautéed, braised, steamed or boiled in soups and stews.
