Summer

Radish Mint Relish Delish

Author Notes

Fresh, crunchy, bright with a little bite, radishes are always welcome in a summer salad. All the better to keep them on hand in a lively chutney, as part of your repertoire of wow-condiments and sauces. For this recipe I turned to a good friend and wonderful cook, born and raised in Delhi. "Easy, here's what you do," she said, "Take radishes, ginger, curry, onion and green chili pepper... add mint leaves. Cook light, very fresh and healthy." I added green apples, a splash of orange for a relish delish! —Vivian Henoch
