    • Quick Salad Spruce Up . . .

      Spruce up your boring salad with a few radish mushrooms! These cute additions add vibrant color and taste to the salad and will quickly garner attention to an otherwise ignored side dish on the dinner table . . .

      You'll Need:

      a Bunch of Fresh Radishes
      a Knife
      a vegetable peeler







      Wash the radishes and remove them from the stems. Score each radish in a tic-tac-toe pattern on the stem side cutting to the center of the radish with each cut, but no further like this:




      Then carefully cut around the center of the radish cutting the outside sections off, leaving the middle section as a stem for the "mushroom"




      Use the tip of the vegetable peeler to carefully peel away tiny circles over the "cap" of each mushroom.





      How do you like to spruce up your salads to keep them interesting and tasty?

        My salads usually are mixed lettuce. The things I'll throw in vary, depending on what I happen to have on hand.

        Feta, Romano, or Parmagian cheese
        Dried Cranberries
        Raisins
        Dried Cherries
        Apple
        Sauerkraut
        Orange slices
        Nuts (pecans or walnuts are favorites)
        Whole baby carrots
        Green onion
        Egg
        Canned beets
        Always home made dressing!
