I’ve been very much into radishes these days. They just look so pretty and red, like little crispy jewels nestled in a thicket of green leaves (which don’t taste very good…I tried eating them). I sometimes eat them just plain and raw, toss them into salads, or slice them for soup garnish. But why should the radish only get to be an accoutrement? They deserve to be the star of the show once in awhile too, right? So I gave my radishes a spotlight and made such a refreshing and simple salad with them, and it only takes a couple of minutes to throw together.

All you need are radishes, fresh parsley, olive oil, and sea salt. ‘Tis a small cast of characters, but they all play very important roles. Just slice up however many radishes you desire into discs about the width of quarters. Chop up a bit of parsley, and toss that into the radish slices with a pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil. Eat immediately for maximum crispness, and take in the beautiful simplicity of this salad.
