Taking The Bite Out Of Globe Radishes.

1:26 PM

So radishes.  I received 2 more bunches of globe radishes and I already have a quart jar of pickled radishes going. If you remember from a few weeks ago, nobody in our house likes radishes.  I personally don't like the bite they impart.  Their texture is just fine and holds up well to grating, so I got an idea:  How about a marinated radish relish? I thought about how marinating raw onion takes the bite out of them... so why wouldn't it work for a radish??   Oh, It does!!!  Does it ever!

This is a really simple recipe for marinated, not spicey, globe radish relish that is refreshing, crunchy, and delicious by itself, on a salad or even on a burger or cold cut sandwich.

These were sitting in my crisper...

Mild Globe Radish Relish
2 large bunches of Globe Radish, grated
1 mild onion, grated

3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
Sugar to taste (about 1 tbsp for me)
salt to taste
fresh ground black pepper

Put grated radishes and onion in a large mixing bowl and sprinkle with salt.  Let sit a couple minutes at room temperature and then squeeze out any excess moisture (I used my hands and paper towels that I had on hand.  The radishes DO stain things pink and the onion... well... it's an onion... so save your clean dishtowels). 

Whisk together ACV, sugar, salt and pepper.  Pour over the radish mixture and toss thoroughly.  Cover and let marinade AT LEAST overnight (24 hrs is even better) in the refrigerator.  The bite will magically disappear and you'll have a lovely little salad/relish to enjoy over the next several days. 

Happy Harvest!
