I am SO excited that we joined our CSA – I tell everyone about it!! I just had my first pickup last week and was able to choose six things: lettuce, bok choi, spinach, kale, beets, and radishes. I don’t really know why I picked the radishes…I don’t really know how to cook anything with radishes!!
My only memory of radishes is when I was a little girl, my mom would make up the most fabulous looking vegetable trays for any party we would go to. She would always add in a few radishes on the top to make it look pretty (if you slice the tops in a checkerboard fashion and soak them in cold water, they open up a bit and look really neat!) While I always admired the look of the radishes, I never ate them because I didn’t care for the taste. So again, that brings me back to, “Why did I pick the radishes?” I guess I thought they had the potential for something good!!
So I brought my radishes home…and there they sat in the back of the fridge for 6 days. When I finally realized my next CSA pickup is tomorrow, I knew I had to do SOMETHING with these radishes before they go bad and before I get my next batch of produce in the house. I put my creative mind to work and created an amazing radish and dill dip!!! I am eating it now with some popped chips as I type out this post!! I can’t stop eating it and I’m afraid I won’t want to eat my real dinner tonight! If you got radishes from your CSA this week (or after seeing this, decide to run to the grocery store to get some) I would definitely recommend you trying out my dip!!
