When the weather gets warm, my mind jumps to berries, zucchini, and beans. I shy away from root vegetables but there is one that fits right in. I often overlook it, but it captures my attention once I take a bite. The white and red stripes of the French Breakfast Radish remind me of Fourth of July picnics with gingham check tablecloths. The spiciness of the French Breakfast Radish also goes well with sparklers and fireworks in the sky. I love them in their simplest form: sliced and overflowing out of a crusty baguette with cold sweet butter and a sprinkle of coarse sea salt. Recently, I enjoyed a salad made of French Breakfast Radish; they were julienned and tossed with lime, fresh mint, and a little red onion. It was light and refreshing and will be perfect to enjoy while waiting for the fireworks to begin.

Just the right amount to make a salad with, our item number for a three each bunch is 25530. To add it to the menu, we have a 24 ct case, item number 22547.
