Radish greens usually end up in the compost. Which is a shame, as they can be used to make a wonderful pesto. This pesto is ready in a flash and the subtle sharpness gives it a wonderfully delicate taste. For the best possible results, make sure the radish leaves are fresh, crunchy and beautifully green.
