One of the ways for someone to be healthy is by making sure that they have enough potassium intake. When we say potassium, people will automatically think of eating bananas. But eating bananas every single day will make one tire of its taste. No worries though, there’s another food that you can eat that’s rich in potassium, and that’s radish! And if you want, you can eat it with tahini. You can make a Tahini Radish Salad!
Radish has a peppery flavor to it, which can b sometimes mild to hot. While tahini has a sweet and nutty taste to it. Tahini can be thick at times, while radish is crunchy. Combining these two will be an explosion of taste and texture.
