Sweet radishes and rye? Why, yes of course! Radish and rye are a perfect pair, as part of a sweet summer salad.
Well, not really “rye,” but caraway seeds ~ those lovely little gems that create the unique and un-ubiquitous “rye” flavor we all adore.
Can’t you just smell it?
And, the sweet marjoram freshly picked from the garden that made its way into my kitchen this week became a large part of the inspiration for this delectable dish.
That, and the crunchy radish, apple, and caraway salad I experienced over the 4th of July.
It was fantastic…and so is this!
Summer Sweet Radishes and Rye
2 tsp. caraway seeds
1 Tbs. coconut oil
1 bunch fresh radishes, cleaned and thinly sliced
1 small shallot, minced
2 tsp. coconut vinegar
2 tsp. coconut aminos
1 Tbs. fresh sweet marjoram, minced
In a small, dry skillet, over medium heat, toast the caraway seeds until they begin to pop. Be careful not to burn (the toasting truly enhances the flavor). Set aside.
Melt the coconut oil in the skillet and add the sliced radishes and shallots, stirring and sautéing until soft and golden. Deglaze with the vinegar and aminos. Add a touch of extra salt, if desired.
Sprinkle and stir in toasted caraway seeds.
Garnish with fresh marjoram
