This is the first lunch I have made in my re vamped kitchen. It’s been a month of no cooking as the kitchen was gutted and resurrected again…shiny marbly white:) Looks too clean to cook in right now but I am sure I will wear it down.

A trip to restock the kitchen located this beautiful watermelon radish and a sprout mix at the local MOMs organic market. I am still looking for my pots and pans but thought I can certainly do a delicious spring salad.

  1. I am kind of obsessed with watermelon radish, your salad sounds so delicious (that dressing, yum) but is so beautiful if it were on canvas I would hang it on my wall.

  2. Suzanne also posted a recipe using these radishes and you both have reminded me that as soon as the weather gets a little warmer I will plant my watermelon radish seeds. Your salad is beautiful and so colorful 🙂

    1. Thank you- I made the mistake of planting my radishes a couple of weeks back. Just when they sprouted it got cold and snowed last night ( in April!!!) I still have not gone out to check if they survived 😦

      1. We had snow here too last night – I never plant this early because you never know about the weather in Michigan 🙂

  7. That dressing sounds delicious, Zeba! I planted these radishes last year and got lots of leaves, but barely any radishes. I guess that’s why in my previous life (my older blog) I was known as TheNoviceGardener 😄😄

    1. Thanks Angie ! You got the “green thumb” for Cooking the final produce – which is much more exciting than gardening 🙂
