What’s for Dinner?

Well, there’s something new and red to hollar about…radishes!  If you see them at the market, they could be in lots of gorgeous shades of white, purple, or pink as well.  There are so many possibilities for this first-of-the-season peek at the radish.  Crunchy, peppery, and really perfect with nothing more than a sprinkle of sea salt.  Use them in their raw state for a bit of sass and zing –  salads, sandwiches, on a crudite platter; for a mellower flavor, simply roast or stir-fry.  And don’t forget the radish greens…nutritious, delicious, and farmers market  green, full, and fresh.  Enjoy the continued sneak peek into spring!
