Snappy Radish Guacamole

September  8, 2010
Author Notes

Radishes were a vegetable that I snubbed when I was growing up. They would turn up in the family salad at night and I would either swallow them or swath them in salad dressing and hope for the best (mom caught any hiding of food and made us eat it anyway). This recipe changed my mind completely. They stand up to the red onions, lime juice, and avocado and provide a crisp and clean flavor to the creaminess of the avocado. It couldn't have been easier and I didn't have to heat up my kitchen. I served it atop of a toasted piece of bread spread with goat cheese and topped with a sprinkling of salty wild Alaskan salmon. I also enjoyed it straight from the spoon to my mouth. —testkitchenette

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and toss to mix ingredients fully. Taste for salt and pepper and correct seasoning if necessary.
  2. Serve as you wish. I suggest as I described but garnishing a burrito would be lovely or along side grilled poultry, meat, or fish would be great also. Tortilla chips would be a nice vehicle as well.
