How to Make Radish Roses

Save

Radish roses (or rosettes) make attractive and tasty garnishes for your fresh food dishes. You can even use them as part of a centerpiece for your table.

Things You'll Need

  • Fresh radishes
  • Sharp paring or other short knife
  • Cold water
  • Clean each radish thoroughly.

  • Cut off the radishes' roots and stems. If you like, you can leave a small, well-formed leaf or two to enhance the rose-like appearance.

  • Make a series of cuts around each radish to form the petals. Cut from root end to stem end. Make a few shallower cuts around the inner part of the radish for more petals.

  • Place the radishes in a container of cold water for at least 15 minutes. The "petals" will open up like roses.

  • Drain the radish roses and use them for a colorful garnish on salads, fresh vegetable trays or other dishes.

Tips & Warnings

  • Keep the radishes in their cold water in the refrigerator until you're ready to use them.
  • Stick each radish rose to a lettuce head or other vegetable with a toothpick for a floral centerpiece. You can cover the toothpicks with green onions or other leaves to give the appearance of rose stems.
  • Don't try to open the radish rose petals by hand; they will break off.
