  • 8 ounces radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds sliced roast beef
  • 1/2 cup cilantro sprigs
  • 1 head green leaf lettuce, leaves separated

How to make this recipe

  1. Put the radishes in a heatproof bowl. In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, sugar, salt and 1/4 cup of water and simmer until the sugar and salt are dissolved. Pour the warm brine over the radishes, weight them down with a plate and let stand for 10 minutes. Drain the radishes, reserving 2 tablespoons of the brine. Refrigerate the radishes until chilled.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk the reserved radish brine with the mayonnaise, buttermilk, pepper and celery salt.

  3. Roll the beef, cilantro and radishes in the lettuce leaves and transfer to a platter. Divide the buttermilk dunk between 6 small bowls and let guests dip the rolls into the mixture.
