Spring is coming to an end and many of us are up to our ears in radishes. They are delicious, healthy, easy to over seed and they all come on at once. Whether you have a pile from your garden, a bag in your CSA box or have compulsively purchased a stack while at Farmers Market, too many of one thing can be daunting.
Here is a delicious solution: Radish Relish. Make it once, and then get creative modifying the recipe.
2 T lime juice
2 T rice wine vinegar
3 T olive oil
1 t Bee Happy Wildflower Honey
1 small bunch of radishes
1 small red onion
2 t House of Ferments Pepper Sauce
Salt + Pepper to taste
One bowl large enough to fit all the ingredients
Combine lime juice and rice wine vinegar in the bowl, quick whisk.
Add olive oil, pepper sauce and honey, brisk whisk until the liquids come together.
Slice onion as thinly as possible, add to liquids bowl.
Wash, trim ends and slice radishes as thinly as possible. Add to bowl.
Gently toss all of the ingredients. A long tined fork is a good tool for this.
Eat immediately or allow to sit. The longer it sits the more juicy it will become.
Try as a side salad, on top of an omelette, garnish grilled fish, add more ingredients to make a full fledged salad (cucumbers, garbanzo beans, white beans and so on).
