Finally back here after a very busy few weeks of finishing up school and a soccer tournament, competitive soccer tryouts for Harmony, the start of Iris' softball season, visiting with family, weeding, getting all my transplants in, raised beds filled and new beds in the large garden started while dodging all the scattered rain showers and thunderstorms. We started harvesting baby greens, herbs and radishes for our salads. A mix of spinach, chard, lettuces, cilantro, chives and dill with some of these spicy, yet sweet, radishes topped with a simple honey balsamic vinaigrette. I have not had a radish since I was a kid, you know, the ones that were basically whole with a slit in the side thrown on a bed of iceberg. If I knew that these homegrown ones tasted this good, they would have had a permanent spot in my garden from the start. Iris handed me one the other day and I actually said "this is the best radish I have ever had". The girls also like them and eat them right out of the ground.....sure wasn't expecting that.
Simple Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
1/4 c. raw honey
1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil
cracked pepper to taste
Whisk all together and serve over a bed of baby greens, herbs and sliced radishes!
Any good ideas for using up all these delicious radishes?
