I'd not been a radish fan since, as an unknowing child, I bit into one that not only burned my mouth, but burned a memory forever in my brain - EAT RADISHES, SUFFER PAIN!
Then I discovered the round, red, sweetly delicious Red Globe Radishes and suddenly I can't get enough of them. All these years. Who knew?
This simple salad is superb with a vinaigrette made with a combination of walnut and olive oils.

As for my new love affair with radishes, French Breakfast is next on my list. Where will it end?
