Radishes are, by far, one of the most undervalued vegetables. They add a spicy, crisp bite to many dishes that would otherwise be lacking. With locally-grown, organic radishes, your culinary creations will taste brighter than ever!
Eat ‘Em Raw (With Butter)!
This classic French snack is one that will completely change the way you think about radishes. Eating raw, organic radishes as a snack is good enough. Maybe you enjoy them with a ranch dip or hummus. But there’s a reason why the French are known to be culinary geniuses. After slicing up your locally-grown radishes, spread on some creamy, salted sweet cream butter. This recipe is a testament to why the simplest recipes are usually the best ones.
By roasting radishes, the peppery flavor dissipates and a more new, sweet taste arrives. The mellow, buttery flavor is best when paired with…you guessed it! More butter. To enhance this flavor, add your favorite spices and organic, fresh herbs. Serve with roasted chicken on a cool summer night, and this dish is sure to become a family favorite.
You may have noticed that some higher end Mexican restaurants add radishes into their taco recipes. Not only do the radishes add even more bright and beautiful colors to tacos, but the pepperiness adds another element of flavor to the traditional Mexican dish as well. Try making your own radish slaw next time your serving tacos, tostadas, or any other Mexican entree.
Shave Or Slice!
By adding thinly sliced or shaved radishes to your salads and tea sandwiches, you’re livening up these classic summer dishes. This summer, try adding thinly sliced radishes to your sugar snap pea salad. For your tea sandwiches for a lunch or brunch party, adding radishes will enhance the flavor while also making a gorgeous statement.
Summer is the perfect time to grill! While you’re outside grilling your favorite cut of steak to perfection, throw a few roughly sliced radishes on the grill as well. Grilling these tasty veggies with a little sea salt and black pepper will bring your summer dinner to an entirely new level.
