You Don’t Win Friends With Salad

15 Apr

That is not only true, but also rhythmically compelling.

But I do win salad with salad.  And thats not so bad.

The only thing remarkable about this cabbage, lettuce, green onion is the dressing.  And EGADS is it a spectacular dressing!!

-1/2 inch of ginger, unpeeled and grated.

-1 tablespoon of rice wine vinegar

-1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil

-2 tablespoons of olive oil

-salt, pepper

-black sesame seeds

Seriously, I’d drink the stuff.

Black Radish beer snack

8 Apr

I was cruising Chowhound.com, where someone else had asked a question of what to do with black radishes.  Amateur chefs all over the eastern seaboard offered many very sophisticated recipes and techniques.  But one commenter, whose Boston accent was so thick I could hear it through the interwebz, got it right in like two sentences.  Grate the radish, add green onion and a little olive oil (and salt&pepper), and eat it with crackers and beer.  Done!

Actually, I also added a splash of red wine vinegar.  And the next time I made it, I added black sesame seeds because they look cool.  We ate these with tortilla chips and the requisite beer.

Black radishes are radical.

Peel'd!

Peel'd!

Black radish, grated to smithereens.  If there's too much water, just squish it out over the sink with your hands.

Take THAT, tortilla chips!
