Here’s another super simple, and beautiful preparation for watermelon radishes. Once you slice into one of these you’ll see that just a simple drizzle of dressing is all you really need. These are pictured with thinly sliced kohlrabi, so if you have some left in your Winter CSA Share Box it’s a great addition.
Carpaccio is traditionally a preparation for meat or fish, but vegetables are great with this application. The capers are a nice contrast. Drizzle these with a simple mustard vinaigrette and serve as a first course or side dish.
