I know it's been a while since I've posted. This is mostly due to my laptop dying this last week along with camera issues that ensued the very next day. My old laptop owed me absolutely nothing being that he has faithfully served multiple people in my family for quite a while now, but I was hoping that my little point and shoot camera would last a bit longer. That being said, she is an old camera. She has not been used much till I began blogging here though, hence her complete and utter desire to leave this life is a bit frustrating. And especially so when I look at the prices of new cameras. Sheesh!
Outside of technical difficulties, I haven't blogged much due to not feeling like the food I made this last 10 days was anything of note. This changed in my mind as I took photos of my radish salad that I eat quite often here in the hollow. I was only taking the photos to see what my camera would do at different times with different light coming in when I thought 'why don't I post a lot of the food we so often eat?' I mean, it's real food, and there must be something good about it or we wouldn't eat it so often. Right?! Maybe...?
So I suppose this post is a little tribute to the food we often eat that is less than glamorous-a simple radish salad that makes just about any meal more fresh and certainly more crunchy and delicious (smile)...
Crunchy Radish Salad
1 1/4 Cups Sliced Radish
3/4 Tbsp. Olive Oil
3/4-1 Tbsp. Red Wine Vinegar
1/8 Tsp. Salt or to taste
Black Pepper to taste
Fresh Cilantro to garnish (optional but good)
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Chill for at least 10 minutes and serve.
p.s. the fruit cake I accidentally posted the other day will be here soon. I had a toasted piece of it today with cream cheese, and it was unbelievable-yum. On that note, do any of you Dearies have a family recipe for edible fruit cake (smile)?
