Luckily, Duda Farm Fresh Foods agrees with me. They are going to great lengths to make radishes more appealing to Americans. Last month they sent me a sample of their new Radish MiniSticks, radishes cut into thin batons. It was love at first sight. In fact, the entire package disappeared into the mouths of my family before I had a chance to snap even one photo. Red-faced, I had to ask for another sample so I could get some decent pictures for this post.
simple radish salad, but I used the MiniSticks with exactly the same dressing, and I liked the results even more.
radish truffle butter sandwiches, for which I also normally use thinly sliced radishes. I even added some to a batch of chicken salad on a whim. They're also excellent straight out of the bag. The Duda website has lots more suggestions, including cucumber radish raita, radish and lime ceviche with grilled shrimp, and a great-looking radish Greek yogurt dip (Super Bowl menu planning, anyone?).
So the next time you're looking to change things up a bit in the vegetable department, think radishes. Whether you grab a bunch from the produce department or a bag of prepared radishes in the bagged salad aisle, you'll be adding color and crunch to your life. And I will have won one more battle in the Radish Wars.
Thanks to Duda Farm Fresh Foods for the samples of Radish MiniSticks. Other than the free sample, I was not compensated in any way for this post. I just really love radishes.
