The other night I diced some fresh Kennebec

Meanwhile, I tasted a delightfully simple salad at arestaurant (precise location forgotten) that featured pickled beets and rawradishes, and here is the sort of dish that’s very easy to create at home. Verythinly sliced radishes offer nice pepper-and-crunch texture against sweet-acidpickled beets, and I simply tossed them together and let sit for half an hourin the fridge, then added a drizzle of hazelnut oil and some chopped toastedhazelnuts. Goat cheese would go nicely here, but it’s not necessary: Justsprinkle with a bit of sea salt and dig in.
