i am completely mad about a plating of fresh cool radishes served with sea salt (maldon preferred) and sweet cream butter. unbelievably good and simple.

Your little radishes are lovely. I've got more radishes coming out of my garden than I can shake a stick at. Nigel Slater is spot on, gotta wait till you see their shoulders. :)

Ha! You would laugh to see our poor radishes this year - your leaves, so crisp and lovely - ours are sadly frayed and bug-bitten. Spicy as all get-out though. Do you notice a difference between spring and fall radishes? Or, perhaps you're able to grow them year-round?

This is a lovely elegy to a misunderstood vegetable. Also, Nigel Slater is the man.

Sometimes I feel like my salad is incomplete without radishes. I've been seeking out more recipes with radishes - some thru my recipe club -- others elsewhere. I've never grown them, but I like the part about their shoulders nudging the surface of the soil. Great tip!

What sweet radishes and a spot of synchronicity too - I had the most amazing radish dish on Friday night and had until them never given them a second thought. I have been converted! Now to manage to grow some...

so photogenic they are! can only have small bits of them at a time but sliced very thinly on various salad and whatnot, they are exquisite

I used to dislike radishes but now have a renewed interest and taste for them. I find them refreshing. I've gotten some really great meals from my favorite recipe club and am still on the lookout for more. But I really love the simplistic approach you've noted here. Sometimes less truly is more.
