French Breakfast Radishes

French Breakfast is a spring radish prized for its sweet, mild flavor and succulent crunch.

Raw, these radishes are great for a snack—on their own, or they're perfect for dipping.

In France they are sliced lengthwise, spread with butter and salted, or placed atop a buttered baguette for a tartine (open-faced sandwich).

A British suggestion is to make a spicy salad from the greens with vinaigrette.

Or, slice the roots and leaves for a stir-fry, or sauté them in butter.

Learn more about them here: The French Breakfast radish makes a handy snack | The Washington Post 

We'd love to hear (and see) what you do with our radishes, and other goodies! Post pics on social media, tag us or hastag #blueskysfarm, and we may feature your photo here!
