This 'salad' is a nice summer dish because it is a good and creative use of radish. I don't know about you but, other than adding it to salads I know no other radish dish.
I am unaware of the origin of the name Chojín, I will try to find out or maybe one of our nice readers will help us!
Vegetarian and Vegan:
spearmint (yerba buena)
add crumbled pork rinds
In the food processor chop the radishes, chop the spearmint, mix together with salt and the juice of lime (generously).
I am vegetarian so I stop here. If you are not vegetarian add pork rinds, that is how the traditional dish goes.
How to eat:
Eat as a side dish or as appetizer in tortillas. I like it in a tortilla with avocado!!
Another tip for my vegan buddies is to use it to dress falafel on a whole wheat pita.
