This Radish Salsa is bright, fresh, and perfect for summer!
Isn’t everything better with tortilla chips?
For some reason I don’t really see tortilla chips as real chips. Like, they might even actually be good for you, which is totally not true. Maybe It’s just that tortilla chips are almost always the vehicle for other, healthier food for me. Like radish salsa!
I’m in love with just about all the salsas. Green, red, chipotle, black bean, you name it, and I want it on a chip. Salsa tends to be packed full of flavor and low on calories, making it a great addition to quesadillas, tacos, and burritos.
I had no idea I loved radishes until just a couple years ago when I finally grew the heck up and tried them. Now I dream all year of radish season, just waiting to put them on my favorite sandwich and slice them thin over nachos. Check back later in the week because I have a great new taco recipe that pairs perfectly with this radish salsa!
Radish salsa can be totally customized. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Leave in some of the ribs and seeds from the jalapeño for extra heat
- Add 1/2 cup diced cucumber for extra freshness
- If you don’t have a food processor simply chop everything by hand
- This recipe is naturally vegan and gluten free – fist bump!
