bounty from the farm

today marks the second week of gathering fresh veggies from my csa.  last week's bounty included red leaf lettuce, mizuna, arugula, and a small bunch of radishes.  i dragged all of this from new york to ocracoke island, and used the radishes to make a delicious simple relish for some freshly caught fish that we grilled (recipe below).

this week (seen at right) the farm delivered bok choi, buttercrunch lettuce, mustard greens, and garlic scapes.  

its looking like a great summer already.

simple radish relish
1 bunch radish - diced (approx 1/4 cup)
1/2 large cucumber - peeled and diced (approx 1/4 cup)
1/2 small red onion - diced (approx 1/8 cup)
1/2 lime - juiced
1 teaspoon vinegar (i used apple cider because that was the only one available)
1 teaspoon olive oil
dash sugar
salt & pepper

mix all ingredients and marinate for at least 4 hours.  overnight is best.
