Radishes can be a tough one for some people to like…they sure don’t get the same press as vegetables like asparagus, carrots, or delicate spinach leaves. Paired with butter though….how can you go wrong!
Easy recipes with less than 5 ingredients are some of my favorites. This sure is one of them, and trust me – it will have you eating butter at your next meal.
You can listen to me talk about radishes and other ideas on the Fresh and Local Show’s podcast here, which airs at the Minneapolis Farmers Market. Get there soon to pick up the ingredients for this fun radish recipe!
