Exploring the recipe: Radishes with sesame yogurt

This recipe, as featured in Bon Appetit, is a wonderful fusion of crisp radishes and creamy sesame yogurt. Naturally, the stars of the dish are the radishes, which need to be washed and cut. The sesame yogurt is a simple combination of plain yogurt, toasted sesame seeds, honey, freshly squeezed lemon juice and kosher salt. Truly, it is a recipe that celebrates the subtly spicy crunch of fresh radishes, complemented by the rich intensity of sesame and yogurt. The added honey and lemon lend a perfect balance of sweetness and tanginess, creating a multifaceted flavor profile.

  • Kosher salt
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

Recreating the recipe and adding a personal touch

The recipe calls for basic kitchen skills, making it a perfect choice for beginner cooks or even for seasoned chefs who wish to create something simplistic yet delicious. Start by rinsing the radishes and trimming the greens. If you’re like me and enjoy a little extra crunch, consider chilling the radishes in ice water before serving. This small alteration will significantly enhance their crisp texture.

For the sesame yogurt, combine the yogurt, sesame seeds, honey, lemon juice and a pinch of salt. To add a dash of my own flair to this recipe, I recommend lightly toasting the sesame seeds before stirring them into the yogurt. This enhances their flavor and gives the yogurt a slightly nutty taste that pairs wonderfully with the tartness of the yogurt and the spicy, peppy notes of the radishes.


  1. Rinse and trim radishes
  2. Prepare sesame yogurt by mixing plain yogurt, honey, toasted sesame seeds, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt.
  3. Let yogurt sit for a few minutes to develop flavors.
  4. Serve chilled radishes with the creamy sesame yogurt.

So there you have it – a simple yet delicious recipe to explore for your next dining adventure at home. The bright, peppery crunch of the radishes paired with the creamy, complex flavors of the sesame yogurt makes this a go-to appetizer that is sure to astound your taste buds.

Remember, cooking is an art and the kitchen, your canvas. Don’t hesitate to experiment with flavors, toss in your favorite herbs, or use a different type of honey. Food is subjective, and the best typed of dish is one that excites your palate. Enjoy!
