Radishes are available in farmers markets in an increasingly interesting variety of sizes, shapes and colors. They are great winter and early spring vegetable when choices of locally grown foods are limited, and they look spectacular when served.
This simple recipe calls for thinly sliced radishes, creme fraiche, a little salt and pepper. From David Tanis, One Good Dish.
And there are lots of radish varieties available in farmers markets today.
To get the uniformly thin slices which make this simple dish so elegant, you’ll need a mandolin.
