Radis Roses

These fresh radishes are among my favorite things to start a meal with. Crisp and slightly tart, dipped in good salt and accompanied with a fresh baguette and a bit of sweet butter, they make a terrific and healthy first course.

I got these at the market in Montrichard on Friday. We ate them on Saturday, just before a plate of beef and carrot stew with french fries. Yum!

    Crunch...crunch...I saw your post early morning. It looked so tasty! It inspired me to rush to our small Flowers-Fruits-Veggie store, next corner and get everything for a fresh salad. I also bought a cactus. Not to eat!!! The place( kept by Iranians) was opened till one on Easter Sunday so people could buy flowers as a last minute gift. Nice...

  2. One of the things I love the most about le repas francais.... starting off with those tasty radishes (even mine from the garden don't taste as good!) and that wonderful French butter. And a baguette on the side. Heaven!

  7. I love the black radis that you find around as well. We really got started eating radis in Mexico but the French have elevated the lowly radis to a more respectable level.
