Black Radish Cream
Substitute this zingy spread for horseradish in your favorite recipes.
1 cup coarsely-grated black radish*
1 cup sour cream or crème fraîche
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons fresh oregano or chives, chopped
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1. Combine all ingredients. Check for seasoning and add salt and pepper as desired. Chill before serving.
*To grate the radish, first trim the radishes from their green tops, and then wash and scrub their tough outer skin. Then, using the large holes of a standard cheese grater, grate the radish flesh on a paper towel-lined plate. Use paper towel to then squeeze any excess moisture from grated radish, then incorporate as described above.
