Ah the radish… one of the first crops to come up in the garden.
So crunchy and fresh, I couldn’t resist creating a slaw. This recipe is simple and delicious! I served it with dinner as a side with white fish and mashed potatoes, but it’s also a great dish to bring to a BBQ or picnic – just double the recipe for more servings! (Serves 2.)
1 cup radish, sliced thin
1/2 cup fennel, sliced thin (reserve some of the fine greens to chop and garnish)
2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
salt and pepper optional, to taste
I whisked the wet ingredients together in a bowl first, then added the radish and fennel. Mix well and serve chilled.
Also, while experimenting with radishes, I enjoyed a snack of radish slices on toast with mashed avocado. The buttery avo went nicely with the peppery radish with a hint of salt & pepper. Give it a try!
Special thanks to John DiLiso for providing me with more tasty radishes than I could ever grow for recipe testing and general snacking!
