You are so radishing!

Hubby had a second day of chili today as it was too much for one day between the two of us, but not enough for both of us for two days because it was only a small packet of minced beef (about 150g).
Last week, I treated myself to some frozen prawns, so I had a salad instead as it’s been another really hot day.

Look what I picked!
These are our first home produce items this year and there are loads more coming.
I’ve never really been a fan of radishes, but there is something about homegrown as they have a flavour all of their own which is nothing like you buy in the shop.
I cut the smaller one in half for Hubby to have a taster, and then sliced the other to go on my salad.
I must admit the flavours of prawns, lettuce, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, grated carrot and radish with a dollop of lighter than light mayo complimented each other beautifully.

    Lovely food post again.
    One time I wasn’t a fan, but I put that down to how they were served to me as kid. Lol
    When I had a mixed salad at my aunts one time years later, I spotted the slice radish in amongst the mixed salad and I am thinking, I’m not going to like this. But I dished it on my plate. I didn’t want to cause a fuss and that’s when I discovered I liked them. So much better sliced with other salads than given whole on a plate. ๐Ÿ˜

    I became a fan of a lot of vegetables like radishes when I started to grow my own too! I’ll have to give this dish a try some day. Beautiful radishes!
