Radishes and Ricotta Cheese

Nutrients are abundant in uncooked vegetables. I like to put raw vegis out in a bowl for Mikey to snack on between meals. Radishes with ricotta cheese is a colorful and crunchy snack for the whole family. The pink color is enticing. The crunch and creamy taste of the cheese make it a great kid food! I love the spicy taste of the radish and pepper seasoning mixed in the ricotta cheese. Don't be afraid of salt with this recipe.

I learned this recipe from Molly Watson of Sunset Magazine. She demonstrated it in her recipe writing workshop.

12 radishes
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Wash radishes. Cut off the green stems with a knife but leave a little green for a handle. Cut off the root from the other end. Make your cut straight and the radish will sit flat on a plate. Mix the ricotta cheese, salt, and pepper. Serve cold and raw. Yum!
