The radish never met the rock star status of other veggies like onions, garlic, celery, or green peppers. The radish stood on its own and was eaten raw. I salted mine.
So noble is the radish that it is served at fine restaurants like The Palm as a pre meal snack along with gherkin pickles.
When I used to have a vegetable garden, the radish was my only root vegetable.
Today, when I replenish my Gatorade stock, I promise dear root that you will come home with me.
