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)

Non vegetarian:
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.

I am in my mid 40's and just starting liking avocado. Man what I was missing all those years. This looks great.

That dish sounds really interesting! I may have to try that! Thanks for your comments on Antigua! Capuchinas was definitely one of my favorite spots. You can definitely link the slideshow. Oh, I also have a really nice slideshow from our visit during Semana Santa in 2008. You can find it by clicking on my March 2008 tab.
