I never liked the taste of radish (labanos), but with hubby I was “forced” to eat foods that were alien to me in my younger years ^_^
White radish acts as a diuretic agent like the singkamas (turnip), watermelon, young coconut, and many other fruits and veggies that helps us expel more urine out of our system. Due to its nature, it has limited but good nutritional values; Vitamin B, calcium and good source of iron, too.
When we have fried or grilled fish, hubby would prepare this radish salad cum appetizer. His version of the Mexican guacamole ^_^
Hub’s radish salad:
1 pc white radish
diced onions and tomatoes
slices of jalapeno
shrimp paste (or just plain salt and pepper)
-peel and julienne the radish
-dip in hot water (not boiling), just to remove its bitter taste
-squeezed out excess water
-AND, mixed all the other ingredients.
