I’ve been developing an obsession with radishes this past year or so – as has most of NYC I think ; ). I’m going to share a few of my favorite radish recipes over my next 3 blog posts – radishes are delicious fresh with a butter dip, in a salsa for tacos or roasted with a little seasoning. Let me know which is your favorite!
Before I share the first radish recipe, I wanted to share some fun experiences my son and I had over spring break this year. We went to DC for his first trip, and he had such a blast!
This was one of our favorite photos in the National Geographic Museum exhibit of the best Instagram photos in which they were tagged.
We had a few great meals as well while in DC. Gluten-free pizza and a delicious tomato soup at Firefly.
And of course a visit around to all the capital city has to offer.
And then of course being silly 🙂
Now I’ll take you on to the great fresh radish with flavored butter
Fresh Radishes and Carrots with Chive Butter and Flavored Salt
1 bunch radishes
2 – 3 medium size carrots
1 stick of butter
1/4 cup chives, chopped
1/2 cup coarse ground sea salt
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
Directions – Chive Butter
Take the butter out of the refrigerator to soften, until it is room temperature and soft enough to mix with a spoon or whisk.
Combine the chopped chives with the butter and mix well.
Either wrap the butter in plastic wrap or in a bowl covered with plastic wrap and refrigerate until it hardens again.
Directions – Flavored Salt
Combine the coarse sea salt, paprika and cayenne pepper in a small bowl and mix until well combined.
Directions – Vegetables
Chop the radishes and carrots into dipping size portions.
Serve the chopped vegetables with the “dips” and enjoy 🙂
