Mustard and Radish Salad Recipe
Spread the love

Mustard and Radish Salad is an extraordinary dish. The two may sound unorthodox but they are a great combination. They are delicious.

“Opposite attracts,” people say. Scientifically and romantically, I somehow agree.

In elementary school, teachers explain that magnets will only attract when they are opposite.

Then, when I grew, I met this extrovert lady, who loves to party, which is a total opposite of me. At first, I didn’t bother to get to know her, but soon after, she started to gain my interest. Then we clicked and our moments blossomed into a romantic relationship.

Though we didn’t end up together, we are just a great example that opposite attracts. I miss the times when we try to get into each other’s interests despite we can’t really appreciate them.

Two vegetables that I thought will never get along are mustard and radish. However, they are a good combination to a salad.

Here is my recipe for Mustard and Radish Salad:


  • 1 bundle mustard
  • 1 medium radish, peeled
  • 3 medium tomatoes, cleaned and chopped
  • Salt
  • Cold water
  • Ground Pepper

Prepare the Vegetables:

  1. Remove the base of the mustard and wash.
  2. Use a salad spinner (optional) to remove the excess water.
  3. Put about 1 tablespoon of salt and 1/4 cup cold water. Then mix well.
  4. Press using your hand to remove the most moisture. Add more cold water, mix, and press again to remove excess salt. Set aside.
  5. Using a cheese grater, cut the radish into small pieces.
  6. Repeat the steps 3 and 4 but this time, using the radish.

Make the Salad:

  1. In a bowl combine the radish, mustard, tomatoes, and pepper. Mix again.
  2. Serve and enjoy.


  1. You can add more salt based on your preferences. However, for me, no need.
  2. You can also add shallots for sweet kicks.
