The Big Red Radish

Big Red Radishes

My mother bought these XXL red radishes the other day. I have no idea if they are a special variety or not but they had a wonderful mild taste. I just wanted to make something special with them, plus I decided to start using kefir more in my cooking. I got some kefir grains from mamajac a while ago and ever since my father has been making fresh kefir every evening. But, kefir is a story for itself and I will tell it soon. For now, here is a suggestion to incorporate it into a simple salad.

First, slice the radishes thin. I used my V-Slicer. Then, make a vinaigrette combining 1/4 cup sunflower oil, a few drops of white vinegar and some salt. In another cup, combine 1/2 cup kefir and 1 clove garlic, pressed through a garlic press. Pour a few tablespoons of vinaigrette over the sliced radishes, follow with kefir and sprinkle with parsley.

    I have never seen radishes that large before. I’m intrigued..

    I think they’re “french breakfast” radishes, which are among my favorites due to their mild nature.
