Watermelon Radish Salad with Avocado Viniagrette

Posted Jan 02 2013 8:00am

A few weeks ago when I got the weekly email from my CSA Farm and saw Watermelon Radishes were in our share, I was so excited. I have seen these elusive radishes on other blogs before, but haven't seen them at the farmer's market or in the grocery store. I'm really not a fan of radishes, but this particular type of radish looks so pretty and neat that I had to try it.  It was spicy, crisp, and beautifully pink. I did a little browsing for a recipe so I could actually show you a fun way to prepare it, and came across this one from Williams-Sonoma. It's very simple, and really showcases the bright, fun radish. The avocado cools down the spice and offers a nice creamy alternative to the crunch of lettuce and radish. The lemon brightens the salad and the cilantro - also in my share this week - adds a nice spice.
