Radish and Green Olive Tartare on Sourdough Bread a Tangy Appetizer
For many people, radishes are something that your mother or grandmother served to guests and a vegetable that rarely sees the inside of your fridge. If you live in Provence long enough, you will begin to change your opinion of these crunchy bites. The radishes that you see most often in the markets are about the length of a pinky finger, and generally speaking are relatively mild in flavour, unlike the round radishes you find in North America.
This appetizer requires no cooking, which is perfect for a hot summer day. The preparation time is limited, and the combination of red radish with green olive makes for a lovely tangy “tartare.” Enjoy the mixture on top of fresh bread with a glass of chilled Mirabeau rosé and these other starters.
