They're larger than usual, about the size of a softball, with pink insides resembling the color of—you guessed it—a watermelon. Often referred to as fall or winter radishes, they peak in the fall but are generally available year-round. If you can't find them, substitute any of its closest relatives—daikon, red, Korean, or black Spanish radish—for a similar peppery flavor and nutritional profile. Radish's costar in this salad, spinach, is well-known superfood with numerous health benefits—among them folate, potassium, and magnesium. This recipe features baby spinach, which is less bitter than regular spinach and one of the less expensive pre-washed leafy greens in the market. Top the veggies with creamy feta and an oil-and-vinegar dressing based on EVOO, a healthy fat that'll help your body absorb spinach's carotenoids, it's most prominent anti-oxidant.
