Humans have been eating roots of all sorts since we found them to be of exceptional nutritional value, and every time we consume them we are tapping into our ancestral diet. Roots are nutrient-dense, in part because they absorb a great deal of minerals from the ground, a good reminder of why we choose organic when and where we can get it. Radishes in particular can be eaten any which way: raw, grilled or pickled. Not only is the root edible, the leaves, flowers, fresh pods and seeds of the radish are too! If you have the ability to grow your own vegetables, you could mix these with the grilled radishes as well, to add an element of interesting flavors and textures.
If you are going all out to impress your guests, why not pair this unassuming salad with a complex dish of Apple-Stuffed Quail and Grapes, and let the presentation speak for itself.
