the trouble with moving is, of course, that you lose all of your favorite local joints. after leaving the upper east side one of the things i missed the most was the guatemalan rabano salad you could get from the taqueria a few streets down. it was so bright and fresh and good after a long saturday night when you're dead to the world and ordering breakfast for delivery.
i know, i know, this is a ridiculously simple recipe and barely even counts as a recipe so much as a list of ingredients with no prep whatsoever that just happen to taste good together. but you'll have to forgive me. on thursday, i had to see a woman about a cat.
i brought home this monster. say hi, jasper.
jasper's a big, fluffy himalayan from a rescue on the upper east side who lived with about seven cats and two dogs, or approximately six cats and two dogs more than i think he's comfortable with. he's immediately taken to the place, exploring and relaxing. checking out the birds outside. shedding enough fur to make a third cat.
but you're not here about cats. you're here for radishes. so, let's go back to guatemala.
1 bunch radishes, cleaned and stemmed
1/2 cup cilantro leaves, minced
1/2 tsp sea salt
black pepper to taste
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp lime juice
slice radishes very thin (i recommend using a mandoline if you can get your hands on one). whisk salt, pepper, oil, lemon and lime juice until combined. toss all together. serve. grab a mojito. this goes incredibly well with pulled pork. tacos. something spicy.
