Winter is almost over here in New York City (or so we keep thinking). I get numerous root vegetables in my organic CSA box and some I just don’t know what to do with. This past winter for the first time I got black radish – quite a beauty I must say.
I made a really nice salad using all the root veggies in my box and it turned out to be really yummy. You can use any of your favorite vegetables for this recipe.
