growing your own



French breakfast radishes from
heirloom seed.
Radishes: I love them.  These are my french breakfast radishes in all their just-picked, jewel toned glory.  I love the vibrant, near fuschia red pink that fades to their pristine white tip.  They are as beautiful as they are flavourful. Plant a row, or two.  You will not be disappointed!

Their peppery bite is tamed easily by any number of citrusy dressings. Bon appetit pairs it well. But try this with a whole grilled local fish on these humid summer nights.  The Croatians know a thing or two about seafood and accompaniments. And any excuse to use mayo..

I made this for a World Cup barbeque buffet mix up last weekend and it was a hit.

Mangia!
