I think it’s become my duty to help you all see that radishes are for more than just salads and salad mixes. Up until last summer I too had only had radishes on or mixed into salad. I had never really noticed them, but I’m so glad that I’ve discovered that there is much more to radishes than just salads.
Last year for Grow. Eat. $ave., I made a braised chicken with spring vegetables…and I pan roasted some radishes in butter too. Boy, oh boy…delish-ious-ness.
For this year’s GES post, I thought an appetizer were in order…perfect for any summer luncheon or potluck. And boy, oh boy…more delish-ious-ness!
