It’s that time of year- the neverending transition between winter and spring. I’m sick of winter, sick of the winter wardrobe, and as much as I love winter root veggies, I’m ready for the next season’s harvest! I can also tell that the warmer months are around the corner since my nail polish is now bright red, Ryan has caught me looking at bathing suits online, spring break starts..well..basically now (!), and the summer wedding invitations are starting to arrive.
As I bumper car-ted my way through a ridiculously crowded vegetable aisle last week in the farmer’s market, I passed by a pile of radishes. I’m not sure if I bought them because they are bright pink, and right now, I’ll take anything with color! Or, if I was craving a radish, which has never before happened in my life, and frankly, I don’t really care for them (so probably not that reason). Whatever the reason, I bought some (2), and recreated a little appetizer I’d had at a local restaurant for our dinner at home last Saturday night.
It’s easy. It’s different. And this is exactly what you might be looking for if you too are in your winter-spring slump. Key ingredient here (besides the radishes of course)- delicious bread. Don’t even try this on some store-bought will last for a million years on your shelf bread. Buy *fresh* bread. Trust me.
Sliced Radishes with butter and sea salt: (confession: no idea what to call this…)
1 radish, thinly sliced
1 Tbsp butter
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 slice fresh bread (I used oat bread)
Simply butter your bread, sprinkle it with sea salt and layer your paper thin slices of radishes along the top. Et voila! Enjoy!
