More radish recipe ideas!

Posted 9/21/2016 12:15pm by John and Aimee Good.

There is a lovely crop of red radishes coming in right now, and I wanted to give everyone some more ideas on how to use them! (I noticed they were piling up in the trade bin last week, so I thought it may be helpful!) I love the spicy flavor of radishes paired with a nice creamy cheese, as a snack or in a sandwich. However if that spice is not your thing, the spicy flavor is mellowed in the 2 recipes below: Radish Spread and Easy Radish Salad. Although we don't often think of it, radishes can be sauteed or roasted, and their flavor changes completely. I love the pretty red slices in a stir-fry. And when roasted with other veggies, they become much more mild. They are juicy like roasted turnips!

Hope you enjoy these recipes, and try some new things with radishes!

Spring Radish Spread, from The Farmers Market Cookbook

*The cream cheese mellows the spicy flavor of the radishes, and this makes an excellent dip or spread!

8 oz. cream cheese, softened                                  

1 tbsp. chopped chives or scallions                                  

1 tsp. chopped fresh dill (optional)  

½ tsp. sea salt

1-2 tbsp. prepared horseradish, drained (optional)

1 cup finely chopped, or grated radishes

Mix all ingredients. Cover and refrigerate 1-2 hours. Serve with crackers or crusty bread (baguettes, sourdough, thin slices of rye). Makes about 2 cups.

 

Easy Radish Salad - this was a hit at a recent family picnic. So simple, very pretty, and tasty!

Mix all ingredients. Cover and refrigerate 1-2 hours. Serve with crackers or crusty bread (baguettes, sourdough, thin slices of rye). Makes about 2 cups.

1 bunch radishes, scrubbed and thinly sliced

2 T. red wine vinegar

2 T. sugar

Mix vinegar and sugar in small serving bowl. Add thinly sliced radishes and toss to coat. Chill in the fridge for up to an hour. (If not possible, add a few ice cubes) Then serve.
