Radishes with Broad Bean & Goats Curd Dip

Radishes are a member of the mustard family and have a peppery flavour and a crisp, crunchy texture. They are a vegetable that is sometimes hard for people to get excited about but the truth is they are the perfect veg for snacking or adding a little crunch to a salad. Radishes are extremely versatile and can be eaten straight after harvesting. May is the time where radishes are in full season – we love a simple radish crudité with broad bean and goats cheese dip. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a springtime picnic or a party snack and what’s more, is you can eat the leafy part of the radish too.
