Radish Anyone?

wpid-20140509_192307.jpgI only came across this little vegetable a few years ago through my mother-in-law who is from Poland where radishes would be eaten far more commonly than in Ireland.  Not that they are not available in shops in Ireland I just never paid any attention to them they appeared bland and unappetising to me.  Guess what? I was wrong, so so wrong.  Nothing bland or unappetising about these colourful and juicy little peppery balls.  Freshly picked and raw – delicious, sliced thinly with prawns and chorizo – delicious or as an addition to any salad, you got it – delicious.
