In the Box — CSA Week 8 {Radish Salad}

This week’s box looks just like the one last week.

Radishes
Bok Choi
Head Lettuce
Mesclun Mix
Turnips
Scallions
Kale

We have had a huge temperature swing here in Chicago, dangerous heat indexes to start the week and 50° to end the week.  I am going to take advantage of the cool temperatures to light the oven and finally make kale chips.

I also decided that I would enjoy some of the radishes fresh, rather then just pickling them.  I made a simple radish salad as a side for of roasted chicken with a schmear of chipotle hummus and guacamole topped with sprouts on a boleo roll.

Radish and Cucumber Salad

2 cups radish, thinly sliced
1 cup cucumber, thinly sliced
2 T. cilantro, chopped
juice of 1 lime
salt to taste

Toss all ingredients together and let sit 30 mins., can even be left overnight.

    I love radishes, but since I am the only one who loves them, I never buy them – but I need to make that side dish with cucumbers – yum!

    I just ran outside on my lunch break – did a PR on my first mile 10 minutes and it was a very hilly route – woot!
