    What would you serve Radish Pico with?

      I love it to garnish tacos, soft or fried, or as a side to grilled meat. I even sprinkle them on top of these enchiladas Willeta, enjoy! https://patijinich.com/pork-tenderloin-enchiladas-with-mole-verde/

    Made this tonight and the only change was that I tossed in an ear’s worth of freshly steamed corn to the mix. Added a nice bit of sweetness. 🙂 Will be making this again!

    I made this radish recipe along with pickled red onions and a variation of another recipe of beef in green salsa. Assembled on a corn tortilla toasted until crispy and topped with these 3 recipes. Delicious. Thank you for sharing.

    This makes such an impressive accent to most meals, espicially in the summer. I definitely recommend using your suggested jalapeno. Even if it requires careful cutting. They all enhance each other! Thanks for making meals exciting… Your simplicity is always amazing!
