Roasted radishes achieve a delicious crispy finish with a juicy mellow bite. We top them here with lemon, dill and garlic to pair with just about any main dish. Thirty minutes from start to finish and you can introduce new flavors to your table. These savory roasted radishes make a wonderful warm starter, before the salad, at a dinner party. Any leftovers are delicious sliced on a deli-meat sandwich or sprinkled over a green salad for a herbaceous kick. Serve with some flaky white fish like cod or grouper and simple roasted green beans for a fun and vibrant side dish.
