Radishes are part of the cabbage family, and are closely related to arugula. Look at the leaves, don’t they remind you of arugula greens? The best way to store a bunch of radishes is to cut off the leaves and store them separately. You can add the tops to spice up your salads, or my favorite, make a spicy pesto!
What you need:
- One bunch of radishes, tops only
- Oil – Olive or Sunflower
- 2 – 4 tbs creamy cheese like ricotta, chevre or cream cheese
- Herb seasoning, like Garden Citrus Blend
- Optional, diced garlic
- Salt & Pepper
In a food processor, combine all ingredients. Pulse until smooth. Add oil until you are satisfied with the consistency. Season to taste. Voila…instant pesto!
