Watermelon radishes have a pale greenish-white skin on the outside that gets peeled off to reveal a gorgeous watermelon-colored flesh on the inside. These radishes are mild tasting and very crispy—perfect for a salad! If you don't have any cooked chickpeas on hand use one can. It's important that they are completely cool before frying them. Serve salad with Coconut Curry Braised Chicken or on its own for a nourishing lunch!
