Radish Slaw - total time 15 minutes

Radishes... they are such a pretty vegetable with the vibrant tones of red... but outside of slicing them up and tossing them in a salad I have never really know what to do with them.  Even when scouring Google and Pinterest it is difficult to find something that isn't a salad or just a garnish (on the bright side, now I know how to make a radish rose).

I know some people pickle their radishes (although I don't know what they do with them, since pickled radishes in a salad doesn't seem quite as appetizing), so I thought a radish slaw would be some where between a pickled radish and a salad.  I have been meaning to post my version of Sweet Carrot's Fried Arts on a Cake... this radish slaw paired with zucchini fritters is kind of a second version of that combination (minus the fried artichokes).  The buttery, cheesy flavor of the fritters paired with the tangy, peppery flavor of the slaw.  A very summery and southern combination.  My husband dug out his old bartending supplies and whipped us up some mint juleps to go with dinner.  Perfect meal to enjoy sitting outside enjoying the beautiful summer weather!

2 cups radish, shredded
1 cup carrots, shredded
1 tbsp vinegar
.25 cup mayo
salt and pepper

1.  Shredded both vegetables and combine in bowl.
2.  Add vinegar, mayo, salt, and pepper.  Stir together.  Let sit for 5-10 minutes before serving and stir again.

So simple!  Do you have any creative ways to use radishes?
