Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Radishes are often a forgotten vegetable. Did you know, radishes are a good source of Vitamin C and may be protective against certain cancers? Topped with heart healthy olive oil, this crunchy snack provides polyphenols (active substances found in plants) that promote heart health and are anti-inflammatory.
