Russians dig radishes—literally and figuratively. Back home in Russia we’d long for early spring and the appearance of fresh radishes in the markets. We always discarded the greens. Then, for most of the  years we’ve lived in America, we’ve always used radishes in our salads, and thrown away the leaves.
