I love radishes, especially fresh ones!

I know you hate cilantro, Beth, but for those who don't, this is a super quick salad/side dish. This is good alongside flautas or enchiladas.

Radish Salad

4 radishes, very thinly sliced
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 Tablespoons finely chopped red onion
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

In a bowl, toss the radishes with the cilantro, onion and lime juice; season with salt and pepper.

I'm sure some would find that salad refreshing and wonderful.....

but for someone who thinks cilantro tastes like 'dirty sweat socks' ~ not so much. LOL!

I automatically switch the word 'cilantro' for 'parsley' and then I'm fine. You'll never see me post a recipe with that evil herb!

Imelda, your garden looks like your cooking does -- fresh, delicious and over the top!

I wish cilantro grew that well here.  We still have some growing and it does really well in winter (even our Southern version of "winter") but once it gets hot, its season is pretty much over for us, though I can keep a tiny bit growing in a pot in the shade until maybe June or so.  I'm jealous of yours -- maybe it doesn't like our humidity?  Your soil looks kind of sandy in nature -- am I right?  Maybe it doesn't like our type of soil, which is more like potting soil than sandy soil.

Your spinach and peppers look delicious, too.  We just planted a jalapeno plant this morning.  

I never had had very much luck with green peppers, though lots of people in Louisiana do.  I tried growing poblano peppers, which I adore, and though they did better than my bell peppers did, they, too, were a disappointment.  I use them in dishes like bell peppers but I like to roast them over a flame on the gas stove (I put one of those wire mesh screen "splash guards" right on the burner and a big poblano on top of the screen, and rotate it occasionally).  I find their flavor is really enhanced if I roast them and peel them prior to use.  Yum.  

We still have a bit of lettuce still growing though the heat will take care of that soon.  And arugula, too, which we used last night as lettuce on our grilled burgers.  I just love the bit of a bite that arugula has.  

I don't think I've ever seen one of your dishes that I wouldn't eat with a smile on my face.  I shouldn't be surprised your garden grown veggies/herbs look just as good.   Wink
