Radishes Rock!

Posted on: May 18th, 2011

Radishes are one of the first things out of the garden – I’ve already harvested a batch from my hoop house (as well as arugula and lettuces).  Zesty radishes are the stars in these two quick recipes, and they were truly stunning I must say!  These short videos recently ran on Dig In Colorado on FOX.

These recipes are keepers, and simple enough for anybody!  Watch the videos, stop by Tony’s for some great ingredients and try them yourself – trust me, radishes NEVER tasted better!  Cheers!
