I like arugula. I like radishes. I like grilled swordfish. So I thought — why not combine the three into a quick, easy, delicious 10-minute salad? With a zingy horseradish vinaigrette, this is a celebration of all things spring.
This is a cooling, crunchy salad which is so easy to pull together. The pink radishes and beautiful green mint and pistachios make for a beautiful light lunch or side dish.This recipe is courtesy of Simply Recipes.
Finally, something to do with those kumquats I bought... Raw radishes are crispy and peppery, but if you sauté them lightly, their sweetness comes out, making a nice counterpoint to the earthy pea shoots and tart kumquat slices. If you don't have kumquats on hand, use thin slices of orange and lemon zest instead.
Summer is winding down, and for most of us that means using up our saved vacation days and heading to the beach for the week. Eating at the beach might not seem ideal, but it can be a great destination for a picnic, so long as you know how to do it correctly.
The first thing to remember is to protect your food from the outdoor elements. You never want the sand, wind, or heat to ruin your picnic, so be sure to wrap all of your items in plastic wrap or foil. Liquid dishes such as cold or room-temperature soup are great to bring to the beach because you can keep them in a thermos and they’ll hold up. If you’re getting fancy and want to keep your presentation skills in check, pack sauces or condiments in mini squeeze bottles for easy and safe plating. Kebabs, requiring no silverware, are another great dish to serve at the beach. Wait to assemble them until you get there, though, and be sure to pre-cut all items so it is simple to assemble while on the beach. When you’re ready to sit down into the sand and eat, lay out a fresh towel that’s sand-free and place weights along the corners to keep it weighed down.
If you really want to impress your beach buds, my shrimp ceviche is the perfect beach-weather dish that will hold up well in a chilled cooler.
In just fifteen minutes, you can take a boring grilled chicken sandwich and transform it into a flavorful, vegetable-filled lunch. Take full advantage of this season's radishes and get your protein in at the same time. This recipe was contributed by Nature's Own.
