Take simple roasted radishes to the next level with butter, parsley, and the char from the grill and you have an all-purpose springtime side.
The combination of butter and radishes is as classic as it gets. The traditional French way to eat radishes is raw and dipped in butter. The bitterness of raw radishes doesn’t really do it for me, but once they’re roasted they turn sweet.
My new favorite cooking accessory is this grill tray. I picked it up at Home Depot while on a run for our current porch construction project (more on that soon) but I found the same one on Amazon.
The tray is the perfect thing to be able to cook veggies and other small items on the grill without having to worry about anything falling through the cracks. The past few years, Dan has been the grillmaster of our house, but maybe this summer I’ll spend more time out there.Print
