    Carrots, cucumbers (remove seeds), and radish
    toss with vinegar, olive oil and add salt and pepper to taste

    When you let the radishes soak in the vinegar it takes some of the bite out of them

    I have never thought to cook radishes, have always eaten them raw. Fresh out of the garden and that is it. I know they have a zing to them but now @Ganado has got me thinking. I wonder if you can use them in soups and other things. I can grow radishes easy but I got sick of eating them the same way.

    Bacon is not an ADDITIVE. Bacon is THE staple of life, the1st and most important food group.

    Thanks for the radish recipe. I'll try it it with bacon:D

    • 3 medium turnips, peeled and grated
    • 3 medium carrots, peeled and grated
    • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
    • 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
    • juice of 1/2 lemon
    • 2 Tbsp olive oil
    • sea salt to taste
    1. Place the turnips, carrots, parsley and pumpkin seeds into a salad bowl. Add the lemon juice and olive oil. Season with salt and toss to combine.
    This salad keeps well in the fridge for up to 48 hours. Keep in mind that once grated, turnip will change the color from pure white to slightly yellowish and translucent. So, if you want to serve this salad for a dinner party and the appearance of the salad is important to you, make sure to prepare the salad just before serving.

    Turnips are really good pan roasted with balsamic vinegar. And like bacon, balsamic vinegar makes everything taste better!

    Sautéed Turnips and Greens
    Cook peeled and cut-up turnips and sliced garlic in olive oil in a large skillet until tender. Add the turnip greens and cook until just wilted. Season with salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.

    Roasted Turnips With Ginger
    Peel and cut turnips into wedges. Toss with sliced fresh ginger, canola oil, salt, and pepper on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with honey and roast at 400° F until tender.

    Mashed Turnips With Crispy Bacon
    Simmer peeled and cut-up turnips in boiling salted water until tender. Drain and mash with butter, salt, and pepper. Fold in crumbled cooked bacon and chopped chives; top with shaved Parmesan.

    Creamy Leek and Turnip Soup
    Cook thinly sliced leeks in butter in a large saucepan until soft. Add peeled and cut-up turnips and enough chicken broth to cover. Simmer until very tender. Puree until smooth, adding water or broth as necessary to adjust the consistency. Season with salt and pepper.

    That is exactly my thoughts. I never once considered thinking outside of the box or salad bowl when it came to radishes.

    Radish top soup- sounds healthy
    Recipe By:LAURA NASON
    "This is an easy recipe that uses an unlikely part of a vegetable we love to eat. It's thick and rich, and so hearty. I recommend eating it with a loaf of crusty bread!"
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 1 large onion, diced
    • 2 medium potatoes, sliced
    • 4 cups raw radish greens
    • 4 cups chicken broth
    • 1/3 cup heavy cream
    • 5 radishes, sliced
    1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion, and saute until tender. Mix in the potatoes and radish greens, coating them with the butter. Pour in chicken broth. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes.
    2. Allow the soup mixture to cool slightly, and transfer to a blender. Blend until smooth.
    3. Return the mixture to the saucepan. Mix in the heavy cream. Cook and stir until well blended. Serve with radish slices.
