Don't you just love happy surprises?
Or something unexpected?
Like when something that is not really particularly pleasant to look at on the outside turns out to be amazing on the inside?
This is the story of a radish.
White and lumpy and dirty on the outside.
But cut it open and behold. There is a reason this radish is known as the watermelon radish.
All I did to prepare it was slice, sprinkle with some olive oil, and roast.
I think they would taste great chilled and added to a salad, but honestly, they didn't last that long.
I had to fight off my daughter for them. Seriously.
They have kind of a creamy texture with a bit of a bite to it.
The story behind the story is that my daughter and I were at the farmer's market and saw these. They'd been there every week and I guess no one was paying attention. So the farmer sliced them in half and left them open for people to see.
We looked, I googled recipes on my phone. We bought.
I should end with happily ever after, but the radish did get eaten, so....
Anyway, have you ever tasted a watermelon radish?
