This is by far my favourite way to eat radishes- which are a favoured vegetable. Thinly sliced radish, 1 crushed garlic clove, chopped spring onion, salt, pepper and a tablespoon of sour cream. I do not know if this is an Eastern European dish, I just know that every time I saw this on a menu in Kiev I would order it.
Tomato,olive oil, lemon juice and fresh basil. I often add chopped black olives and/or crumbled feta cheese.
Cucumber, olive oil, lemon juice and fresh mint. I am afraid today’s version was without mint due to an unfortunate mishap featuring one of our cats and a mis-timed leap onto the window sill.
Today we encouraged summer by having the first BBQ of the season. Grilled halloumi, pineapple and pepper skewers were a perfect match for the above.
