Huge thanks to everyone who came out to the Davidsonville Green Expo this weekend. I met so many folks excited about eating a local, sustainable diet, and supporting local agriculture in Maryland. For those of you who missed the demonstrations, I'm posting the links to the 5-minute Salad Dressing recipes and the Dye Easter Eggs Naturally . Find more recipes like these in Fairytale's recipe guide, "Eat Your Greens: Ideas for Not-So-Boring Salads" All Weekly Harvest subscribers who sign up before 3/31/19 will receive a copy in their inbox this week.
Last year a few of my Farmette customers told me "I just don't like radishes." How sad! I thought maybe they have only had the dried out bland grocery store radishes in the bag, maybe they never considered putting a radish on a taco or in a sandwich! This year I decided to get ahead of radish season so folks don't miss out on the local season for these humble beauties. Starting today Fairytale Farmette is starting a #savetheradishes challenge on Instagram and Facebook. Follow me on Instagram @fairytalefarmette or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/fairytalefarmette/ and post your best ideas for enjoying the humble radish and tag it #savetheradishes. Hopefully we can compile a nice Save the Radish recipe guide with everyone's ideas!
I'll start us out today with the one that I presented this weekend:
CROATIAN RADISH SALAD (SALATA OD ROTKVICA)
Recipe from Saveur
2 tbsp. mayonnaise
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp. minced parsley
1 tsp. minced thyme
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 bunches small radishes, trimmed and thinly sliced
Whisk mayonnaise, oil, lemon juice, parsley, thyme, salt, and pepper in a bowl; stir in radishes. Chill salad 15 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
I can't wait to crunch into the first crisp radish of the season but they are a still a few weeks away here on the Farmette. In the meantime, Spring has brought happy daffodils for cut flowers this week. There are not quite enough stems to make them available, yet, but I'm hoping this weekend I will have the first few cut flower daffodil bouquets of the season. They will be in limited quantity so be sure to visit the home page to reserve yours as soon as they become available.
