Easter Egg Radishes in the Summer?

I spotted my favorite root vegetable at a local farmers’ market this morning – Easter Egg Radishes.  The mix of red, pink, white and purple radishes, while smaller in size, stand up to the pepperiness of the larger red variety.

In fact, I prefer Easter Egg Radishes when serving them the French way.  Slice off the roots and the top greens, and arrange the brightly colored radishes on a flat serving dish.   Accompany with French sea salt and a ramekin of room temperature French butter.  Enjoy by placing a touch of butter and then a pinch of salt atop each radish.  This is a light yet tasty hors d’oeuvre, perfect for the hot summer months.

Do not discard the tops! Rather, consider sautéing the leafy greens as a side dish.
