a new salsa for taco tuesday

I think poor radishes are a really overlooked underutilized vegetable. First off, they taste great. Second, they are gorgeous.  I mean seriously – they are hot pink. So glam rock, right? So why aren’t we eating them more often? I promise this little recipe will make you completely reconsider this crunchy little treat.

Crunch Factor

Don’t get me wrong, I love tomato salsas. Honestly, I love all the salsas, but that’s for another time. Although I discovered it as a pairing to a carne asada taco recipe, this salsa has a wonderful crunch factor that really livens up any taco or chip. So, it has become a staple side to many a taco Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Saturdays – or whenever.

Easy Peasy

Did I mention this recipe takes like 10 minutes to whip up? And, it’s pretty! I said that right? Sorry, I’m fixated on color. Hot pink rules!
