If you haven't eaten radishes, you definitely should. (And my favorite radish recipe)

Radishes are an undervalued root vegetable. Lets face it, those poor little radishes are always left on the veggie tray. I'll be honest, I had never eaten one until we started growing them, and we started growing them because they are absolutely beautiful! Once we started selling them we noticed that not may people eat them, but those that did RAVED about how good ours tasted. So I started researching radishes, and found out that they are rich in antioxidants and minerals, like calcium and potassium (both excellent for lowering blood pressure), and full of natural nitrates...they are one of the best foods for you! They can be eaten raw, shredded and added to salads or tacos, roasted, grilled...the list goes on and on. If you're like me, your schedule is packed, so here is my favorite quick and easy radish recipe.
