Spring, This Week

Grilled Radishes with Apples, Cheddar and Radish Tops

With the weather turning into grilling weather, I thought I’d try to grill some veggies. If you’re not yet in the outdoor grilling mood, you can always roast the radishes in the oven or in a cast iron skillet. 

What you need:

  • 1 bunch radishes with tops
  • 1 apple, thinly sliced
  • 1 spring garlic stalk or 2 garlic cloves
  • Oil
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Cheddar cheese for serving, in thin slices

If roasting in oven, heat to 450° F, or use a hot grill.

Remove the tops from the radishes. Clean both parts well, set the greens aside. Grill or roast the radishes with no oil for about 12-15 minutes until tender. Let them cool, then cut in half. Toss with the sliced apple, radish greens, spring garlic, and cheddar cheese. Add ¼ cup vinegar, a pinch of salt and pepper, and a generous glug of oil.
