I was quite surprised at how few recipes I came across for radishes in my search, but in the end I settled on a recipe in last month’s Real Simple Magazine: Braised Chicken with Spring Vegetables [5].

I also love my recipe for Radish & Cucumber Bites [6]!

I made a few adaptations and substitutions…and in the end, I was quite impressed with how this turned out.  It left my tongue and palate wanting more!
