The other day I did something I have never done before.  I bought a bunch of radishes.  You see I've never liked radishes; as a child I would avoid them at all costs. I remember thinking they were one of the worst tasting things ever (mind of a child you know). But I was at the market and the radishes stood out. Their vibrant red color called to me.  I put them in my basket, deciding that since I was no longer a child I should give them a try.

I used them to make a simple little salad, which turned out well.  My husband loved it and I found it to be light and refreshing.  I believe I'll be using radishes more often in the future.

Simple Radish Salad 
Makes 1 or 2 servings

4 radishes thinly sliced
1 Tbsp olive oil
Juice of ½ a lime
2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
1 clove garlic, coarsely chopped
a sprinkle of salt

In a small bowl combine oil, lime juice, cilantro and garlic.  Toss with sliced radish and sprinkle with a little salt.

  4. Since you're also a butter lover, try the typical French nibble -- a slice of radish, a dollop of butter, a little sea salt. Eat, enjoy, repeat. Allison

  5. Wow, I had no idea radishes were so beloved!

    Allison thanks for the tip!
