One of the delights of Spring is the fast growing radish. While the radish looks small and sweet, it packs a real palate punch with its crisp crunch and peppery flavor. Here's an easy recipe that celebrates the radish rather than relegating it to a garnish.
Simple Radish Salad
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon fennel seed
2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
1 garlic clove, minced
1 pinch sugar
1 pinch salt
1 pinch pepper
15 -20 medium radishes thinly sliced or shaved
Flat leaf parsley leaves for garnish
In a small bowl, combine vinegar, oil, fennel seed, chopped oregano, minced garlic, sugar, salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, toss sliced radishes with the vinaigrette mixture.
Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. Garnish with fresh flat leaf parsley if desired.
