PDQ Radish Salsa

Makes about 1 1/2 cups.

Note: Enjoy this fresh, sappy salsa as soon as it’s made; it won’t keep much more than a day (two at most). It comes together in a snap, so make just what you need. This is especially good on black bean nachos with sharp cheese (shown in photo). From Beth Dooley.

• 2 tsp. minced shallots

• 1/2 c. chopped fresh cilantro

• 2 tbsp. chopped fresh mint

• 1 small jalapeño, seeded, deveined, minced

• 3 to 4 tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice

• 1 tbsp. honey, or more to taste

• 2 bunches radishes (about 1 1/2 c. finely diced)

• Salt to taste


In a medium bowl, toss together the shallots, cilantro, mint, jalapeño and lime juice.

Stir in the honey until dissolved. Toss in the radishes. Serve right away or store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
