We were inspired by her recipe for farmer lunch this week and it was fantastic!  Our version had way more carrots and less radish because that what was on the Farmer’s shelf, so it came out a bit more like a slaw, but it was still fantastic!  Lindsey has some radish green recipes coming, we just chopped them up and put them under the salsa/slaw.   Thanks so much for the inspiration Lindsey!


1 1/4 cups radishes, cleaned, greens removed and diced into 1/2 inch cubes (about 1 lb) – save the greens.
