I was lucky enough to receive part of a lab-mates CSA share when she was going out of town! Amidst the spring onions, kale and parsley lay a small bunch of radishes. Hmm... last I remembered I didn't like them, but I was determined to give them another try.
My first bite was of one freshly washed. Bite, indeed! If I was going to like them, it wasn't going to be raw :) I roasted half of the bunch in a little olive oil, salt and pepper, and while it didn't quite have the same bite, it wasn't anything I'd do again.
My last ditch effort was a radish dip I found online. Combined with feta and some other goodies from the CSA (onions and parsley), the radishes almost disappeared into this light and refreshing dip! As a dip for veggies or pita chips, even as a topping for a burger, I really enjoyed it :)
